Project Management for Medical Devices

I have just created and released a new course through my website,

[URL=""]Project Management for Medical Devices[/URL]

This is a basic 101 course for those entering the field of device development or looking to refresh their knowledge and earn a certificate as evidence of training. The summary of the course is reproduced here below the line. Enjoy.

__________________________________________________ _____

This is a basic online course about how to manage medical device projects for new professionals or those just entering the field. Courses in Project Management (PM) abound both in the classroom and online. However, nearly all currently available courses focus either on generic PM or specific industries such as construction and software development. There is a decided lack of PM courses that address medical device development (MDD). Enter this course.

Through a series of video lectures and slides, this course will tackle the combination of best practices in PM and design controls for MDD. Students will understand how the contemporary MDD process (design controls) fits into the accepted method for PM taught by the Project Management Institute.

After a brief definition of PM and medical devices, the course will step through the accepted PM Processes and apply them to the equivalent steps taken in Design Controls as per regulation 21 CFR 820.30, which governs medical devices. Next, the course will describe key PM Knowledge Areas appropriate for MDD and introduce some new ones, such as Regulatory.

Medical device professionals dealing with development projects either directly or indirectly can benefit from this course, as well as newly hired engineers and project managers that need a basic introduction to the field.The course is 100% online and modeled after the “Systems Management for Medical devices” class taught at the New Jersey Institute of Technology since 2009. (It was formerly called Project Management for Medical Devices.) Students in this course will gain a broad overview of all aspects for the early phases of device design. This course assumes no prior knowledge of medical devices or their development. New students should be able to understand the entire content with no prior background.
