The use of medical devices is subject to regulatory requirements during the entire product lifecycle. Knowledge of this ever more complex subject matter of medical device law is already indispensable during the first implementation of an idea as well as a device’s development, operation, and service.

Course objectives

  • The certificate course Medical Device Law offers a combination of knowledge acquisition in a university setting and the character of a seminar with the opportunity to make contacts with participants as future specialists.
  • You will become acquainted with the German and European legislative framework for medical technology products.
  • You will understand the conditions, connections, and interdependencies between the corresponding directives, laws, and standards.
  • You will be enabled to take the necessary measures to comply with legal requirements successfully and in a timely manner.

Course structure

This certificate course consists of 10 different seminar days with tests taken separately. Attendance at all 10 seminar topics needs to take place within two years. Following successful participation, you will receive an FAU certificate. The attendance of individual seminar days is also possible without a test. The seminar days are composed of professional lectures and practical parts, for example group work. All 10 seminar days are currently only offered in German.
