Our program:

The Quality profession is critical for medtech business success in ensuring high quality standards that meet the needs of FDA, International Regulatory, and ultimately patient safety. The Graduate Education in Medical Technology Quality program is designed in close collaboration with the Medical Device and MedTech industry to provide students with the necessary tools and competencies needed to be effective professionals and leaders in Medical Technology Quality (MTQ).  It will build a solid foundation for anyone wishing to enter this profession and help to expand and strengthen the knowledge of current Quality professionals.

The program is designed for working professionals with classes offered evenings and weekends at the SCSU Twin Cities Graduate Center in Maple Grove. Courses are taught primarily by industry experts in this field with many years of practical experience and leadership working for medical device and technology companies. The program also leverages the expertise of select SCSU Professors that specialize in key knowledge areas. Like the Regulatory Affairs and Applied Clinical Research Masters programs this program’s direction and evolution is guided by the same Medtech Industry Advisory Board made up of some of the industry’s top executive leadership in Quality and related fields.
