International Activities



MDMA works with its members to improve their knowledge about and access to international markets and business development opportunities, including with top-notch, fast-growing hospitals overseas. The focus of MDMA's international activities is primarily on rapidly emerging medical device markets but attention is also paid to issues and opportunities in the EU, Japan and Australia.

MDMA organizes numerous international business development missions for members to meet with foreign policy-makers, executives of success local companies, hospital executives that buy medical technology, and prospective local or international partners or advisors. 

The MDMA International Working Group typically meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 2pm ET via teleconference.  If you would like to join this working group, click here.
