The Center for Professional Innovation & Education, Berlin, Germany
12 & 13 March, 2018

Course Description - Course runs 9:00 to 5:00 both days (Breakfast & Lunch Included)

Geared for both experienced medical device professionals as well as those new to the industry, this seminar is designed specifically for those who need a better understanding of the regulatory requirements necessary to bring medical devices to market in the US.  This course discusses important regulatory requirements and concepts using case study discussions of real products from a variety of clinical specialties.  Strategies for using regulation as a competitive advantage are also discussed.

All medical device pathways to market are presented with a discussion of the advantages and challenges of each.  Multiple examples of products on the market, under development and on the drawing board (including videos) are presented in an interactive format.  The seminar concludes with a look at the regulatory challenges for the future of the medical device industry including combination products, tissue engineering, and nanotechnology.

Using the case study, participants will learn to communicate more effectively with regulatory professionals and the FDA and understand how regulation impacts medical device development to get products to market quickly and efficiently and to avoid problems before they occur.
