With just a few clicks, it is easy to find courses about various aspects of Medical Device Development online. The real gap in medical device courses, however, is that most or all of them require some prior knowledge to understand. They may also be heavy on jargon that is never explained. Where does that leave those who are truly new to the field?
One would think also that people who have earned degrees in medicine and science-related fields are taught this material in school, but they are not. Most universities cover the basic science and engineering topics necessary to be effective, but they do not often cover real job activities, nor do they explore the various moving parts to developing medical devices. Someone has to explain it plainly.
Welcome to Medical Device Courses! The aim here is to create courses that give the basis for understanding higher concepts in medical device development. Through recorded online webinars, students will come to understand from the beginning what the process of developing medical devices is from different angles.
The instructor, Dr. Josh Simon, has over a decade of experience developing medical devices and seven years of experience teaching the process to others. His background in both heavy engineering and business is propelled by a talent in explaining difficult concepts to those not in the field. Over the course of his career so far, Dr. Simon has trained physicians, sales reps, newly onboarded engineers, and many hundreds of graduate Biomedical Engineering students.
If you are new to the field or want to brush up, these courses are exactly what you need. You may be a physician or graduate student with a great idea that wishes to enroll in a few medical device courses so you can understand what lies ahead of you, or a veteran of another industry who recently entered the field through some accident of employment. Alternatively, you may be a professor in collaboration with industry and desire to understand the other side of the fence. Whatever the case, proceed to the medical device courses home page and check out what is available. If you are completely new, we suggest you start with Medical Device Development.
