New Program Prepares Students for Medical Product Development


The Medical Product Development Post-Graduate Certificate Program, offered through the Department of Medical Laboratory Sciences & Biotechnology, is designed to provide core knowledge of the medical product development process. Courses will be delivered online in a hybrid approach, both synchronous and asynchronous. The program will focus on medical diagnostics and devices and the US regulatory approval process, although it will highlight differences with other types of products and international regulatory considerations. 

This is a one-year, part-time, online program. Students must have a bachelor’s degree or higher (preferred disciplines: biotech, science, engineering, business or marketing) and it is recommended to have 2+ years of experience working in medical product development or similar field. 

Learn project management and development of new medical products and services and gain skills to work in R&D, manufacturing, RAQA, marketing and support. Coursework includes identifying customer requirements, understanding compliance, designing for improved performance, addressing risks and building market success.
