Moreover, this certificate program is expected to evolve into a formal Masterís degree option in the near future.  In order to become a Masterís degree program, new courses must be added.  One of the planned new courses is a course in the economics of regulation and antitrust, and a second planned new course is the economics of healthcare.  Both of these courses are already offered in the College of Business Administration at USF.


 The Aim of the Program

The Master of Science Program in Regulatory Affairs (Medical Device Concentration) is directed toward individuals with technical backgrounds in the medical device / pharmaceutical / regulated industries who currently occupy or are moving into professional regulatory affairs positions. This program develops the requisite compliance skills by combining current regulatory approaches and quantitative techniques in a balanced curriculum, which strengthens compliance credentials and develops professional engineering management competence.

The MSRA Program in the Department of Industrial and Management Systems Engineering at the University of South Florida will prepare today's technical workforce to become tomorrow's medical device professionals.
