FDA continued to invest in internal and external training opportunities supporting the medical device review process. CDRH’s Staff College is a premier workforce development organization that designs and delivers internal training opportunities to meet the professional needs of FDA staff. The Staff College categorizes internal training into the following categories: Regulatory and Law, Science, Leadership Education and Development, and Professional Development. These categories represent the core business and science competencies identified for staff and are intended to result in desired behaviors, skills, knowledge, and abilities employees need to do their jobs successfully. CBER reviewers also participate in some of the training provided by CDRH’s Staff College, as well as training provided by CBER. FDA periodically prepares a summary of Staff College training for discussion at quarterly performance meetings.
