||Course "Medical Device Risk Management A to Z - Best Practices for Effectiveness and Efficiency" has been pre-approved by RAPS as eligible for up to 12 credits towards a participant's RAC recertification upon full completion.
FDA views risk management as an essential process both during inspections and in the review of pre-market submissions. Effective risk management has become critical to medical device manufacturers and this interactive two day seminar is aimed at providing medical device professionals with the tools necessary for effective risk management implementation in device manufacturing and marketing.
It will address both the fundamentals of risk management as well as current best practices for ISO 14971 compliance. The course will look in detail at risk management requirements in the US, the EU, and other parts of the world. Taught using an interactive workshop format, attendees will practice all the risk management activities required by ISO 14971. Exercises are aimed at demonstrating efficient and effective use of risk management, including best practices in applying the ISO standard. Emphasis is placed on practical solutions to practical problems. Seminar instructor Harvey Rudolph, Ph.D., one of the authors of ISO 14971 and a 25 year veteran of FDA, will also provide insight on the guidance contained in new ISO TR 24971 (Guidance on the application of ISO 14971) and how to integrate risk management into your quality management system.

Housing the largest collection of Salvador Dali works in the world, the museum offers a regularly changing exhibit of the legendary surrealist artist's melting-watch canvases and a wide variety of his sculpture and fiber objects that are, at the very least, intriguing.

In the museum store you can select a memento of your surreal experience. Do check the website or call for timings.

San Diego Cabrillo National Monument
The first European to set foot in California was the Spanish explorer Juan Rodriguez Cabrillo, who stepped on shore near this spot in in 1542. He's the guy they made this statue to look like - and named the park after. We don't know if Cabrillo climbed all the way up to the top of this promontory or not, but people who make up here nowadays get some of the best views of San Diego, looking across the Bay and back toward downtown.
Sea Creatures at Birch Aquarium
Birch Aquarium is north of San Diego in La Jolla. It's not as big as some of the other aquariums in California or as flashy as the big sea-themed park down the road, but instead just right, filled with interesting exhibits and home to leafy sea dragons like the one above, creatures so improbably they look more like something from a children's book than from the ocean.
Legoland theme park takes its inspiration from Lego toys, those cute little bricks that snap together to build all kinds of fun things. It's one of several Legolands worldwide.
San Diego Zoo Safari Park
The San Diego Zoo's sister park offers a different kind of animal experience. Its name (Safari Park) is the clue and it indeed offers a more safari-like experience. Lots of large animals live in the same big, open areas here - predators kept away from prey, but otherwise much as they would in their natural habitat.
Coronado isn't really an island but a peninsula - a fact that doesn't get in the way of the name most people use for it. Whatever you call it, it's on a slender strip of land between the San Diego Bay and the Pacific Ocean, barely a few blocks wide. What it lacks in size it makes up for in fun, with a beach that's been named among the best in the country, a classic hotel and a compact, lively little downtown. Coronado's laid-back temperament makes a nice break from the busier parts of San Diego across the water.
Originally built for temporary use during the 1915-16 Panama-California Exposition in San Diego, Balboa Park boasts buildings beautiful enough to be considered attractions in themselves, especially if you're a photographer. They're surrounded by trees, lawns and fountains, but that's only the beginning.
In Spanish, La Jolla means "the jewel," an apt name for a pretty, Mediterranean-style seaside town - sitting on cliffs flanking the ocean.
La Jolla visitors like to shop and eat in the nice restaurants, some of them with lovely ocean views. There's a lot for the active visitor, too, including ocean kayaking, tide pool-hopping, surfing at Windansea Beach, biking or running along the waterfront.
