David Barr, Vice President, Sales and Commercial Marketing,
Phoenix Eastern Insurance Brokers Inc.
“For anyone thinking of taking these courses go for it. If you work within the healthcare industry already, then you should be aware of the fact that the regulatory changes encompass social and economic issues as well as safety and efficacy. This program will allow you to dig a little deeper into these risk management issues, and perhaps gain a better insight into the entire healthcare system from both a social and political perspective to the science of health itself.”

Karen Amodeo, Senior Human Resource Generalist
Medtronic of Canada
“MEDEC’s online program provides a wonderful opportunity for our employees to develop skills that are specific to the device industry. As human capital is the most valuable resource to our business, I am excited to see such a commitment on the part of employees to make the investment in their own development. This program will help Medtronic to develop talent within our organization and help to prepare our employees for next-level leadership.”



In 2005, MEDEC was recognized with Humber College's Innovation of the Year Award for MEDEC and Humber's joint online medical device industry certificate program.

The purpose of the Innovation of the Year awards is to recognize college employees who have designed and implemented a significant innovation that positively impacts the learning of students. In exceptional cases, awards are shared with external partners such as MEDEC, for their partnership contribution throughout the program development and delivery process. As a result, we have a phenomenal program that will greatly benefit people working in the medical device industry.
