Applied Medical’s Regulatory Affairs team guides and supports the organization in maintaining compliance with regulations that govern how products are developed, tested, manufactured, and marketed. Regulatory team members have the responsibility of interpreting U.S. and international regulations, developing regulatory strategies, supporting rapid product enhancements, and utilizing customer feedback to address healthcare needs. As part of Applied Medical’s mission to bring affordable, high-quality devices to market, the Regulatory team works closely with in-house teams, as well as domestic and international customers, to distribute and sell our medical devices in more than 75 countries. The team focuses on quickly bringing new and enhanced products to patients.


At Applied Medical, Quality team members are responsible for interpreting and implementing standards, procedures and regulations related to medical device manufacturing. The Quality team collaborates with many in-house teams, including Regulatory Affairs, Engineering and Clinical Development, to make sure Quality System (QS), Medical Device Directive (MDD) and other regulations are followed. Team members have exciting opportunities to work in Quality Assurance, Quality Control and Quality Systems as part of Applied Medical’s responsibility to bring safe, effective and high-quality products to the customers who need them the most.


“Not only does Applied Medical build superb medical devices; it builds careers. I was the 41st employee hired in 1990. Since then, I’ve spent time in every Engineering division, Documentation Control, Maintenance, the Prototype Shop, Automation, Mold Manufacturing, Quality Systems, and Regulatory Affairs. I’ve been here for 27 years. I could retire but I would miss the community!”

Frans V. - Team Member Since 1990

“To have a career that has provided me with so much learning and knowledge, has offered many great opportunities to grow and develop, and has allowed me to contribute to numerous accomplishments is beyond my expectations. Being able to experience all of that and witness a small company grow so large and become so successful has made this a very rewarding career.”

Patti C. - Team Member Since 2002
