Teaching Assignments and Speaking Engagements

Teaching and Speaking Engagements

Virtual livestreaming or in-person conferences for audiences of 20 to 300 people, our consultants are invited speakers at industry and government forums. Our presentations and breakout sessions are customized to meet the conference’s  desired outcomes and the audience’s expectations. Presentations include those for US National Institutes of Health (NIH), the Taiwan Center for Drug Evaluation, the Medical Marketing Association, and the Medical Device Manufacturers Association (MDMA).

In addition, Susan Rowinski, President and CEO,  is guest teaching faculty at the University of Michigan and Georgia Institute of Technology.  She taught for several years at the University of California- San Francisco for the Master in Medical Translational (MTM) Program. Using a case study approach Susan demonstrates in practical terms to students the commercial value of payer reimbursement in reducing the business risks inherent with transitioning medical technologies from the academic setting to the commercial market. To date Susan has taught almost 900 students comprised of MD, PhD, and Master-level candidates.

A summary of where and when we have presented and taught since 2004 can be found below. We welcome inquiries to discuss the possibility of including Susan Rowinski or our reimbursement consultants to teach at a Master/PhD level degreed or Extension program, to speak at an industry forum and /or facilitate breakout sessions.
