New masterís in medical technology quality offered

Tuesday, August 7, 2012

St. Cloud State will offer a new Master of Science in medical technology quality degree program in the fall.

The medical technology quality degree provides professionals with skills and a strong understanding for helping medical technology companies deliver high quality products and solutions for the healthcare industry. This is information that is critical to meeting industry regulations and ensuring patient safety.

“In today’s competitive environment, especially in the Minnesota medical device sector, identifying and hiring competent and well-informed personnel in the quality profession is becoming more and more difficult,” said Jeff Fecho, vice president of global quality for St. Jude Medical in St. Paul.

“The medical technology quality program, coupled with the already active regulatory and clinical programs at SCSU, provides us with a readily available and credible source specifically geared toward the medical device industry. This program has global appeal and is a key educational component in assuring that our employees have what they need to keep us compliant and competitive.”

The medical technology quality program is the third St. Cloud State master’s program designed for the medical technology industry along with regulatory affairs and services and applied clinical research.

Classes will be evenings and weekends at the St. Cloud State Twin Cities Graduate Center in Maple Grove. Contact the SCSU College of Science and Engineering at 320-308-2167 or e-mail mtq@stcloudstate.edu if interested in enrolling.
