Considering regulatory requirements and vendor capabilities from early study development to optimize clinical operations

June 27th & 28th, Santa Clara, CA

OCT Medical Devices moved to Irvine, California for the first year in 2016, and we are pleased to say it proved a resounding success. As the only event to cater for the Southern California Medical device hub in Irvine, it brought together a variety of medical device companies of all sizes, including Medtronic, Edwards Lifesciences, Onciomed, Inc and St Jude Medical.

The encompassing agenda focussed on the most pressing topics within the industry, from emerging markets to medical device reimbursement, and it still stands as one of the leading clinical focussed events which encompasses discussions across the med-device industry.

We are pleased to announce the event will continue its tour of the American medical device hubs, and for 2017 it will take place in the Santa Clara area within Northern California.

Based on the success of Irvine, make sure you don’t miss out on your chance to participate in this event for the first time in Northern California.
