The CRDI / CÚRAM Partnership is pleased to announce the recent launch of its new e-Learning course ‘Fundamentals in Medical Device Design and Regulation’ with the first intake of 24 postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers from CÚRAM and partner institutions registering to take part in December 2017. This online course comprises two modules 1. Principles of Medical Device Design and 2. EU Regulation of Medical Devices and has been developed to impart important industry, research and regulatory concepts relevant to the entire life cycle of medical device development. On successful completion of this course participants will appreciate the multi- and inter-disciplinary nature of the field and have good insight of the medical device industry in Ireland, they will also understand key concepts such as biocompatibility as well as processes involving biomaterials and biomechanics in medical device design. In addition, participants will also learn about the existing legislative framework for medical device regulation in the EU and how this applies to medical device research and development. Recent revisions to the EU medical device regulatory framework are also covered along with a brief review as to how the key changes will affect medical device research and development going forward.
