I've seen this title most often associated with device manufacturers. Am I right in thinking that Clinical Affairs is synonymous with Regulatory Affairs? Or, is the former term more specific to the device industry and the latter, perhaps, more related to pharma?
Related to this question, is it commonplace for people with regulatory affairs responsibilities to move between pharmaceuticals (drugs) and devices, or is the relevant knowledge highly industry-specific? It seems (from LinkedIn) that many working in Clinical Affairs do not hold PhDs.
