About Us

At Prenuvo, we are on a mission to flip the paradigm from reactive “sick-care” to proactive health care. Our award-winning whole body scan is fast (under 1 hour), safe (MRI has no ionizing radiation), and non-invasive (no contrast). Our unique integrated stack of optimized hardware, software, and increasingly AI, coupled with the patient-centric experience of our clinics across North America, have allowed us to lead the charge against “we caught it too late again.” Prenuvo operates preventative screening clinics in Vancouver, Silicon Valley, Dallas, Boca Raton, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, New York City, Bethesda, and Chicago, with more clinics in North America and internationally in the next 2 years.

The Opportunity

We are changing healthcare and bringing a slow moving goliath of an industry into the present while blazing a trail into the future of radiology and clinical operations through software, automation and AI. We are looking for a Regulatory Affairs Specialist to support global pre and post market matters including regulatory submissions in all target jurisdictions as defined by our corporate strategy.

The RA Specialist will ensure regulatory compliance of Prenuvo’s product portfolio including SaMD/MDDS/CDS for advanced medical imaging technology and innovative AI/ML-enabled medical devices, in all target jurisdictions as defined by our corporate strategy.
