Course Description

The online 10-Week In Vitro Diagnostic Devices Fundamentals program covers the different regulatory pathways for medical devices, and how each impact the regulations to which they are subjected. Specifically, we will focus on in vitro diagnostic devices (IVDs), and discuss how the determination is made for those to be exempt from most of the requirements of the Investigational Device Exemption (IDE) regulations. We will also discuss how the determination of significant and non-significant risk for the device is made, and how it affects the submissions and review process by the IRB. Study design, conduct and quality control (QC) requirements for IVDs and laboratory-developed tests will be covered.

The resources required to take this on-line course are already at your fingertips - an Internet connection and a phone. After registering, you will receive an email confirmation that provides you with the Web Seminar link and audio connection information.

Prior to the start of the course, participants will receive Module 1 materials. Course materials for subsequent modules will be sent weekly prior to class. Come to class prepared to interact – you will be able to ask questions, provide feedback and participate in discussions and group work. Upon course completion, participants will be provided training certificates. In order to receive accreditation CEUs, participants are required to pass both a mid-term and final exam. Upon completion of the exams, CEU certificates will be provided.
