During this webinar we will provide information on the backgrounds of FDA employees, how FDA employees are trained, how they interact with the regulated industry.

We will also explore FDA managers and how they approach their job, which has a direct impact on how you try to resolve FDA problems.

If you assume the way an FDA employee's mind works, by using the model that you have seen in your private industry experience, you may find yourself very confused by actions and words of an FDA employee

Why should you Attend: Any firm that develops and manufactures products regulated by FDA will need to deal with FDA employees.
