Medical device development is a dynamic area for professionals considering a career in regulatory affairs and can be as simple as a Band-Aid or as highly complex as lifesaving robotic equipment. Medical devices are increasing in complexity and becoming ubiquitous in the medical field. More recently, the convergence of medical devices with other industries has propelled growth and required more professionals to learn regulations. New products built from a combination of information technology and software enabled medical devices have expanded the need for those involved to learn regulatory requirements, including engineers and other technical associates. Additionally, a convergence of medical devices and drugs brings new treatment opportunities to healthcare, including drug coated stents used for cardiovascular procedures. The advent of such combination products make it necessary for therapeutics professionals involved in regulatory affairs to also become knowledgeable of regulations that apply to such devices.
The Regulatory Affairs for Medical Devices certificate provides professionals with the essential knowledge to work in this highly regulated environment and the process needed to develop medical devices from concept to commercialization.
