MedDevice Development Immersion is a two-day course examining all aspects of medical device development. Starting with an overview of the different types of devices and the different industry sectors, the course then delves into the changing regulatory environment. This includes a discussion of the different regulatory pathways and a comparison of FDA vs. EU approval processes. The five phases of medical device development – market opportunity, evaluation, design, verification, and manufacturing – are described in detail. Develop an understanding of the entire process required to bring a new medical device to market.
