Regulatory Affairs Minor

The Regulatory Affairs Minor covers FDA regulations, laws and regulatory document processes related to medical devices, medical device development, and project/facility management. The program provides students with an understanding of applications such as obtaining approval for medical devices, pharmaceuticals, and biologics, and marketing and implementing medical devices in hospital/clinical settings. The minor prepares students particularly for careers in regulatory affairs, but also for the healthcare industry in general.

Students majoring in biomedical engineering can count no more than 9 hours from their major towards this minor. Students may not receive both the clinical engineering and regulatory affairs minors.
