Regulatory Affairs requires a specialized skill set, which combines the knowledge of animal science and veterinary medicine, with skill in navigating governmental processes and regulations.
Students in the Graduate Certificate in Regulatory Affairs in Animal Health will be able to 1) Demonstrate comprehensive understanding of the regulatory process and strategy for products approved by the FDA/EPA/USDA, 2) Identify the extent to which clinical research protocols establish the efficacy and safety of products compliant with regulatory guidelines for product development, and 3) Synthesize regulatory requirements with effective business practices while operating in a compliant manner. This certificate is offered by the School of Applied and Interdisciplinary Studies (Olathe Campus).
The courses for the certificate can be applied to other Master’s programs such as the Professional Science Master’s degree or the M.S. in Veterinary Biomedical Science, after a student is accepted to the Master’s program.
