Prepare for a Job in the Medical Device or Regulatory Affairs Industries

Learn about the Medical Devices and the Regulatory Affairs certificate programs at our quarterly info session led by our Kiran Gulati, program chair and instructor. You'll have a chance to hear about the skills you need to succeed in these two fast-growing Silicon Valley careers.

The Medical Device certificate program includes courses focused on the development and commercialization of safe and effective medical devices and in vitro diagnostics (IVDs). You'll learn to take a practical and hands-on approach, the courses build a solid foundation that span product design and development, regulatory and quality issues, innovation strategy, risk management and more.

The Regulatory Affairs certificate was developed under the guidance of industry and government experts to provide a broad regulatory foundation, exposure to practical, real-world applications of the regulations, and an appreciation of the important roles that regulatory affairs professionals play in the bioscience industry.
