Short Course* Registration: 7:30AM-12:00PM

Led by pharmaceutical industry regulatory operations staff, the course will take you through a journey to an optimized outsourcing model in Regulatory Operations and will cover outsourcing opportunities in both publishing and regulatory information management. Over the past 10 years outsourcing regulatory operations work has gone from marginal to an integral part of a successful organization. From simple contract outsourcing to strategic alliances, starting a new outsourcing project or further expanding an established one could be seen as a daunting project with multiple facets.

Through the course we will review case studies and industry experience on what a successful outsourcing project may look like, including transparency into what has worked well and potential hurdles.
