Tech Clinic TBD

 As a doc control expert with 50 years experience, I've held various levels of managing a Document Control department. I've also collected a great many ways of making my job easier. I've spent many years in medical device manufacturing which requires some of the best document handling. My philosophy is, if they don't understand the process, they can't do their job.
