The Regulatory Affairs Professionals Society (RAPS) signed an agreement with the University of Shanghai for Science and Technology (USST) to develop regulatory-focused educational content for the Chinese university.
Under the terms of the agreement, RAPS will adapt and offer some of its existing online course content to USST students. RAPS will also help the university develop new regulatory courses. The course content will be initially focused on the regulation of medical devices but could expand to cover other medical products in the future. The audience for the courses will include student-level and novice regulatory professionals, scientists and engineers involved in medical technology research and development, and government inspectors.
“USST is the only school in China offering bachelor’s, master’s and Ph.D. programs in medical devices and is in an important position for educating and training regulatory professionals in China and internationally,” said Dr. Baolin Liu, professor and dean, School of Medical Instrument and Food Engineering, USST, Shanghai. “We had hoped to partner with RAPS, the leading international regulatory professional organization, and look forward to great success.”
