This course is the first course in a planned Professional Master program
in Regulatory Science and Engineering. However, we also see relevance to
our student population who may work in industries regulated by the FDA.
This course is designed to provide students with a strong basis for
understanding industry interactions with the FDA. Although you sometimes
hear groans of frustration from industries that must interact regularly
with the FDA, you also hear much praise for the safety of our medical
systems compared to much of the rest of the world. If we want to maintain
that safety record, the first step is to study the FDA and understand how
and why they make their rulings. This course provides an overview of the
FDA world.
