TGA calls for medical expertise

Have you ever wanted to have a say in what drugs or medical devices should be allowed on to the Australian market?

The Therapeutic Goods Administration is currently recruiting medical experts across a range of specialties to advise on the regulation of medicines, therapeutic devices and vaccines.

The TGA is looking to fill vacancies on eight statutory advisory committees covering prescription and non-prescription drugs, biologicals, complementary medicines, therapeutic devices and the safety of medicines, vaccines and medical devices.

The committees provide independent expert advice to the Health Minister and the TGA on specific and technical matters.

The medicines watchdog said it was seeking expressions of interest from experts “who have expertise in relevant clinical or scientific fields, or appropriate consumer issues, and want to contribute to the regulation of therapeutic goods”.

Appointments are for up to three years, and are set to commence next year and in 2016.

Applications close at 5pm on Monday, 11 August.
