Affinity Groups

At MedTech, we understand the value of connecting with colleagues from across the bio/med community. MedTech's affinity groups are networks of members with common interests that meet to share experiences and learn from each other.   

These groups allow you to customize your MedTech experience and connect you directly to the partners, resources and news you need to grow your life sciences enterprise and move your business forward.

Unless otherwise noted (as on the "Roundtable" groups), affinity groups are open to all MedTech members. Login to MemberCONNECT to join.
