Do you have a medtech idea but unsure of how to progress it? Are you confused by Medical Device Regulations?
Translate MedTech have developed two free and exclusive online courses suitable for staff and students with an interest in medtech: giving an overview of medical device regulations, how to ensure your device meets a real-world need, and some of the common pitfalls in product development.
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.
