Design Control Training for Medical Devices: Requirements and Best Practices

Choose from classroom or online delivery.

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 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.
