New England Medical Innovation Center (NEMIC), a premier institution committed to advancing medical innovation, is thrilled to announce its cutting-edge MedTech education program is now accessible to an expanded worldwide audience via edX – a leading global online learning platform from 2U, Inc. 

NEMIC’s program–titled MedTech Fundamentals by NEMIC Virtual Classroom–marks the first ever Professional Certificate Program in MedTech available on edX. As the field of healthcare continues to evolve at an unprecedented pace, the inclusion of NEMIC on edX aligns with the platform’s mission to make quality education accessible to individuals worldwide.

Founded more than 10 years ago as a joint initiative out of MIT and Harvard, edX has garnered worldwide recognition for its commitment to providing top-tier online education and its evolution of e-learning. Thus, edX serves as an ideal learning platform for NEMIC to share its wealth of knowledge with a broader global audience. 

“This is a huge achievement for us.  This partnership allows learners from diverse backgrounds to engage with NEMIC’s bespoke MedTech Education programs like never before,” NEMIC Executive Director Maey Petrie said. “Formulating, and then implementing this curriculum from the ground up has been a years-long project; and to now see it not only available online, but with the far reach of a prestigious online learning platform like edX, is very exciting.”

Researched, developed, and delivered by industry professionals from some of the world’s most admired and successful Health Technology Companies, the MedTech Fundamentals Professional Certificate Program follows a typical innovation-to-commercialization process. The first-of-its-kind program not only opens up new opportunities for existing edX learners who simply want to learn about the industry,  but it also offers a truly unique education solution in the health technology space, allowing learners across multiple sectors to align skills to advance their medical innovation. 

Through interactive video lectures, engaging activities, and downloadable tools, MedTech Fundamentals covers a comprehensive range of Health Technology topics, relative to bringing a MedTech device to market, including commercial viability; intellectual property & defensibility; regulatory affairs; and more. Learners can gain the skills and practical insights needed to successfully navigate the MedTech space, which is highly regulated by the FDA.
