The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia by and on behalf of the University of Georgia College of Pharmacy, Institute of International Biomedical Regulatory Sciences (“UGA”) and the Atlanta District of the Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) are co-sponsoring the 10th Annual FDA/UGA Medical Device Regulations Conference for the medical device industry and those who interact with them.

UGA College of Pharmacy jointly developed the Medical Device Regulations Conference with FDA to facilitate understanding and collaboration between highly experienced professionals and technical experts from the FDA and industry on medical device issues. This conference carries out FDA’s mission to protect the public health and fulfill UGA’s educational and service missions.

Through a series of plenary and sessions, this conference will provide opportunities for attendees to learn about critical issues and current thinking in medical device regulations.

Goals and Objectives

The Medical Device Conference was established to provide educational and networking opportunities to help shape the future of medical device advancement from a regulatory science perspective. Using a tutorial approach, experienced leaders from the FDA, industry, and academia will present and engage the audience on issues related to strategic and tactical implications of FDA’s medical device regulations.
Aligned with the strategic priorities of the FDA, this conference seeks strategic solutions to complicated issues.

These challenges include:

  • Designing products with the patients in mind 
  • Addressing compliance and submission concerns 
  • Risk management throughout the life cycle of the device 
  • Risk management as part of design control 
  • Human Factors/Usability testing as part of risk management 
  • Current regulatory trends in the medical device industry
