FDA Mini-Course: Regulation of Medical Devices — Do you see yourself as one day inventing a solution to a critical clinical need that will help millions of patients? To achieve that vision, you need insight into the world of FDA regulations. This summer, Biomedical Engineering’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design is opening its mini-course called The Regulation of Medical Devices to JHU clinicians and faculty members, and to graduate students on a limited basis.

There is no cost for the nine-week course, which will be held on Wednesday evenings, starting June 9, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  Lecturers will be volunteer experts from the FDA who have an interest in helping others understand the critical part of the pathway that innovations will travel. Topics covered include design controls, the 510(k) and PMA processes, investigational device exemptions, clinical trials and post-market surveillance.
