Course Description

GMP & Medical Device Manufacture

Institute of Technology Tallaght

The medical devices industry is undergoing major changes globally as many new products enter the FDA approval pipeline. The move is for more high cost products to come to be manufactured in Ireland and there is also a move towards more combined products where medical devices are now being classified not just as medical devices but also as medicines.

Ireland, because of its favourable tax regime for the manufacturing industry, the availability of a highly trained workforce, and its long track record in successfully supporting healthcare manufacturing has gained great economic benefits by continuing to attract many of the top manufacturers in the world to her shores. It is home to a growing number of medical devices, and healthcare companies. The medical devices sector is seeing changes to its product lines and regulatory requirements.

A key constraint on this industrys growth is the continued supply and availability of skilled graduates. Companies still report difficulty in finding suitably qualified employees. There is a critical need for training programs to provide a qualified workforce for company expansions and for new manufacturing enterprises locating in Ireland.
