Medical Device Industry CoalitionThe FDA Medical Device Industry Coalition (FMDIC), composed of members of the Dallas district FDA staff and individuals from associations representing the medical device industry, was formed to promote communication, education, and cooperation between the regulators and the regulated industry. To further these goals, the coalition holds quarterly meetings to discuss issues of concern to the regulation of medical devices. In addition, the coalition sponsors training meetings and seminars to help educate both the FDA and the medical device industry. ASQ Biomedical Division is a proud member of this coalition.
