MS in Regulatory Affairs Program
The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) and BD Diagnostics (BD) have partnered to offer a unique master’s fellowship in the field of Bioscience Regulatory Affairs. JHU and BD have a shared interest in cultivating and educating the next generation of workers in the field of regulatory affairs. Students accepted into this fellowship take courses approved by their JHU advisor from the course catalog and offered at existing JHU locations, including online. Selected students will be employed by BD and will, therefore, be required to successfully complete BD's employment process and meet BD's requirements for continued employment. JHU will provide the basic formal educational structure for all students within its program.
BD will provide salary and tuition support for up to five incoming JHU BSRA students each year BD will also provide, through designated members of its staff, mentoring of BSRA fellowship students.
BD Diagnostics, a segment of global medical technology company BD, (http://www.bd.com) is a leading provider of products for the safe collection and transport of diagnostics specimens, as well as instruments and reagent systems to accurately detect a broad range of infectious diseases, healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) and cancers. BD focuses on improving health outcomes for patients and providing laboratories with solutions that improve quality, enhance laboratory system productivity, reduce costs and inform medical decisions.
Students in the MS in Regulatory Affairs Program take six required regulatory courses. With this foundation, students will have the opportunity to specialize in an aspect of regulatory affairs of their choice through three elective courses, including advanced regulatory and science courses. Finally, hands-on, real life experience will be provided to students through a practicum course at the end of the program. The strong science foundation, the opportunity to specialize, and the practicum requirement distinguish this program as a leader in bioscience regulatory affairs education. Students completing the program are expected to be able to lead regulatory affairs initiatives in government and industry.
