Translate ran a very successful Training and Development Programme delivered through a flexible, pick and mix of introductory, stand-alone training courses, designed to equip researchers with the skills needed to translate research ideas into medical technology products and clinical solutions. We covered a range of topics from medical device regulations and IP, to managing a professional social media profile.
As the programme draws to a close, we developed two of our most popular topics into virtual on-demand courses which are free for our consortium to access.
Each course is broken into digestible chapters, and lasts a total 30 minutes:
How to develop robust medical technology solutions to real problems
This course is an introduction to developing medical technologies, understanding the market opportunity, identifying unmet needs, intellectual property rights and more.
By the end of this course, you will be briefed with everything you need to know to develop robust medical technology solutions to real problems.
What academics need to know about the regulation of medical devices
This course is an introduction to the regulatory requirements for placing medical devices on the market and CE marking. It will help you to decipher all the regulatory jargon and understand the new Medical Device Regulations in Europe as well as UK legislation.
By the end of the course, you should be well set up to understand requirements and responsibilities, and plan your regulatory and clinical strategy.
