Message from the Faculty Director

I would like to welcome you to the Master of Professional Studies in Regulatory Affairs program at Georgetown University's School of Continuing Studies. Regulatory Affairs is a relatively new field that seeks to foster development of innovative products to enhance health and well-being in a landscape characterized by rapid, multi-dimensional change. Regulatory affairs professionals perform this work in a variety of settings, ranging from private-sector pharmaceutical companies, to federal oversight agencies, to research settings in academe. Across all of these, creativity and a deep knowledge of scientific, legal, policy, organizational, and ethical dimensions of the field are critical to success. Georgetown's program will give students the broad preparation necessary to help create new knowledge and develop products that can be of tremendous benefit to society—both now and in the future.

With warm regards,

Robert V. Bienvenu II, Ph.D.
Faculty Director and Associate Professor of the Practice, Regulatory Affairs
