#45 | Plan Early for a Global Medical Device Launch

Dr. Michael Drues, President of Vascular Sciences, is a global regulatory specialist who has worked for the FDA and for companies developing medical devices which gives him a unique perspective on getting approval to sell medical devices. 

He says to his clients that getting FDA or “international FDA” approval is similar to playing poker. You have to understand the rules and know how to play the game to win.

He also shares his “Tell don’t Ask; Lead don’t Follow advice.”

The biggest mistake he sees - not thinking about global markets from the start!
