Healthcare Meeting Compliance Certificate


About the Course


Every healthcare meeting professional must balance unprecedented changes and demands on understanding the global impact of healthcare compliance. They must tackle tough regulations, adjust and readjust priorities while keeping one eye on the short-term and the other long-term survival—a tough job without a continuing flow of knowledge. Why not make an investment in your future and your company’s success by participating in the Healthcare Meeting Compliance Program?  The Certificate is a program providing a foundation in key healthcare disciplines in a condensed format. It is designed for those (planners and suppliers) who need a broader understanding of a full range of regulatory topics.

This program is taught by professionals specifically trained to develop a competency foundation, while building critical thinking skills through case studies, business simulation, discussion and active exercises. The intensive four-hour educational and training program provides healthcare meeting compliance stakeholders with the knowledge and experience they need to successfully navigate the increasingly complex pharmaceutical, biotech and medical device regulatory environment.

Upon completion of this program, attendees will earn the HMCC designation, which signifies that they are aware of the latest compliance regulations that impact healthcare meetings.

  • This certificate program is a designation and is valid for 2 years.
  • There is no test and no “pass/fail”—our focus is on educating planning professionals
  • Increase credibility with clients and tap into new employment opportunities
