TOPRA helps members perform to the highest level and supports their professional development through all stages of their careers. Projects on regulatory competences, educational pathways and professional accreditation have culminated in a clear exposition of all career stages from student to thought-leader.
Attracting future professionals
TOPRA offers student membership, reaches out to schools and universities and engages students in TOPRA activities, such as presenting a poster at the Annual Symposium.
In a drive to widen access into the regulatory profession, TOPRA is taking a lead in the UK Apprenticeships Initiative by developing a Regulatory Affairs Standard – that will also be of value to help benchmark regulatory training internationally.
Delivering regulatory qualifications
TOPRA’s postgraduate programmes have seen hundreds of regulatory professionals achieve a worthwhile qualification – from certificate, to diploma or MSc Regulatory Affairs.
A new flexible MSc RA with additional module choices is now available. Students will be able to specialise in either pharmaceutical RA or Medical Devices RA – or combine modules from both specialties, meeting the growing need for regulatory training in drug-device combination products.
Sound research is a driver for any scientific sector – and regulatory science is no different. TOPRA now offers an opportunity to study at PhD level and contribute to the body of regulatory knowledge.
