Long Description

Ireland's MedTech sector involves the design and manufacture of diagnostic, hospital/homecare, ophthalmic, orthopaedic, vascular and connected health solutions. Ireland is one of the largest exporters of MedTech products in Europe with annual exports of €12.6 billion and companies here directly export to over 100 countries worldwide, employing over 30,000 people nationwide. 18 of the world's top 25 medical technology companies have a base in Ireland and 50% of the 450 MedTech companies based here are indigenous. However, the MedTech sector is witnessing a significant skills deficit which challenges their ability to sustain their continued growth in Ireland over the next five years.

To support graduates who wish to up-skill and transition into the sector, this Postgraduate Diploma in Medical Device Technology and Business combines the scientific and business skills delivered by experienced industry lecturers, supported by significant career development, mentorship and networking to transition recent graduates into a sector in need of high-value skills. Innopharma has been successfully delivering up-skilling in the MedTech sector for 10 years. In 2018/2019 alone, across our other programmes, over 170 Innopharma students found employment or progressed their career in the MedTech sector, working in companies such as Medtronic, Boston Scientific, Mylan, KCI, Tech Group, Abbvie, Stryker, Creganna, Lake Regional and many more.

The programme provides a unique blend of business and technology modules including medical device technologies, transversal skills for working in corporate environments, regulatory requirements, emerging business trends, continuous improvement and strategic leadership. The programme is delivered using a combination of classroom lectures supported by live online delivery to support regional participation and for graduates who find employment prior to completion of the course. Innopharma utilises full-time resources to liaise with industry and identify career opportunities for participants including work placements, internships, part-time and full-time roles.
