AAMI’s Human Factors for Medical Devices training is one of our foundational training courses needed for all medical device manufactures. It includes regulatory requirements of FDA, specifically the interpretation from the Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) Human Factors team, as they relate to human factors, and the process of applying human factors in the design of a medical device. The course also includes the regulatory perspective of the Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) and the impact of human factors on the pharmaceutical industry. Learn human factors methodologies—contextual inquiry, heuristic evaluations, formative studies, summative studies, the post-market arena, and relevant standards.
Human Factors for Medical Devices
