The CRDI / CÚRAM Partnership recently launched the second year of its popular e-Learning course ‘Fundamentals in Medical Device Design and Regulation’ with the first of its two supporting workshops focusing on the ‘Principles in Medical Device Design’. It was delivered to some 45 participants drawn from clinical research, academia and industry.
The course which, in addition to exploring the fundamentals of device design also considers the ‘EU Regulation of Medical Devices’ has been developed to impart important industry, research and regulatory concepts relevant to the entire life cycle of medical device development. Regulatory content development was supported by Industry (Aerogen), by the National Competent Authority (HPRA) and the National Standards Authority of Ireland (NSAI).
The course, which is ECTS accredited for post-graduate students through NUIG, is also designed to support CPD for the more advanced medical device researcher.
