Advanced Medical Device Development


advanced medical device development course

This course is a sequel to Medical Device Development, but can also be taken by those who have more than one year experience as a medical device engineer or other professionals.  Material in this course picks up from the point of “design freeze” and discusses the events occurring from then on through obsolescence. Those in the device industry understand that development does not cease once a product is released to market:  there are numerous tasks required to keep the device selling in a heavily regulated environment.  Aspects of managing devices covered in this course include: Manufacturing process development and validation, Regulatory systems outside the United States, Clinical trial practices, and Product Management.  The course is 100% online and modeled after the “Advanced Medical Device Development”  class taught at the New Jersey Institute of Technology since 2013.  It is designed to give a “big picture” view of devices and how their development and life cycle proceeds.  Anyone specializing in a particular area, such as Quality or Regulatory, can gain good understanding of their own area as well as others that touch the process.


Advanced Medical Device Development Course Objectives:

  • Understand the processes for medical device development after “design freeze”
  • Become familiar with the European regulatory framework for medical devices
  • Gain an understanding of manufacturing process validation

    I purchased the course “Advance Medical Device Development” on Udemy. Can I access the course link and participate the discussion here?

    Does this website provide Handphone App so I can access the course anywhere anytime?

      Hello, you can absolutely participate in the discussion here on the Medical Device Forums, where other people are taking the courses.

      The website works pretty well on a phone browser, but does not have an independent app.

    I purchased the course on Udemy. Do I can get the same benefit as I purchase course here? (Basic template documents for common manufacturing process validations,
    A 50-page e-book, Access to a medical device forum, and Free updates to course material etc.)

    1. Josh says:

      Yes. The courses are identical here vs. on Udemy. Those benefits sound like the ones for the Clinical Research for Medical Devices course.
