Design Control Training for Medical Devices: Requirements and Best Practices

Can't travel? This class is also available virtually.

Design controls are integrated management practices applied to the medical device development process, ensuring that the resulting device is safe, effective, and meets stakeholder requirements. The pace of change and the iterative nature of most design processes makes understanding when and how to apply design controls even more important.

In this 3-day class, you’ll learn strategies and best practices for managing these processes, thus ensuring that your organization’s devices meet user needs, intended uses, and specified regulatory requirements, including MDSAP (Medical Device Single Audit Program) and the EU's new Medical Device Regulation.

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Virtual seminars run as 1/2-day sessions. In-person classes run as full-day sessions. See the virtual session daily class times.
