The MDMA Annual Meeting will bring together executives from innovative entrepreneurial medical technology companies and healthcare's most influential and respected decision makers. Understanding the impact of industry and government trends has never been more important, and we encourage all industry executives to attend.

In addition to healthcare reform, FDA issues and comparative effectiveness research, this meeting will feature sessions on improving the US patent system, developing a comprehensive compliance program, international opportunities and challenges, and many more issues affecting smaller medical technology companies.
