  • Students will need a general understanding of what clinical trials and clinical research are

This course takes the painfully dry regulations and methods used for clinical trials on medical devices and distills them nicely into a clean overview over the course of an hour. Students will learn about Good Clinical Practices (GCP's) and the regulations that govern clinical trials in the USA and rest of world, such as 21 CFR Parts 50, 56, and 812 and the ICH guidelines. As a "quick hit" to gain knowledge, this course works wonderfully for getting new trainees to hit the ground running. It also serves to increase the knowledge of current Clinical Research Associates, especially those who are soon looking to take a certification exam for clinical research.

Who is the target audience?
  • Clinical Research Associates looking to expand their knowledge
  • Individuals preparing to test for a clinical research certification
  • Experienced clinical professionals looking to brush up on regulations
  • Medical Device Project Managers that need to understand the role of clinical research on their team

Medical Device Development Professional

Currently, I am Principal Consultant at Spiral Medical Development and an Adjunct Professor at the New Jersey Institute of Technology. For over 10 years, I have worked in various roles developing medical devices and have touched perhaps hundreds of them in varying capacities from concept to launch.

As someone that loves to give back and feels obligated to teach those that are coming after me in the medical device industry, I have always said that it is important to excel in at least two things. Every day I try to be an example to my coworkers and students by using my experience in research and business to bridge the gap between the two. This usually involves conversations from all perspectives covering project management, medical device product development, marketing, training, and research planning. Being able to explain tough concepts to audiences without background in a subject has been my forte, and I have used it in numerous device companies, sales training classes, CME, and Grand Rounds presentations around the world. Going the other way, I have conveyed crucial business strategies to motivate product development and research professionals both in industry and academia. While my formal training is in general business and Biomedical Engineering with specific interest in bone tissue engineering and biomaterials, I see myself as a translator. The languages of business and science are not often mutually understood, and I act as the intermediary.
