This 2-year degree prepares students for a career in the growing field of medical devices. Medical devices include everything from MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) and X-ray machines to novel adhesives for surgery and bandages.

Associate degrees from Bio-Link programs emphasize practical, “hands-on” learning, and familiarity with cutting edge techniques, technologies, and equipment. With this degree, students gain a working knowledge of design, manufacture, and regulation of medical devices.

In addition to  design/ manufacturing of medical devices, other courses include medical device regulation and ethics, introduction to quality assurance, medical terminology, human physiology, and technical writing. Foundational courses in English, and a variety of math and science disciplines including biology, microbiology and computer science are often included.

This degree can be used for entry level positions in the design, manufacturing, regulation, or sales of medical devices.
