Why Join?

AdvaMed membership makes you a part of the world’s largest trade organization representing the interests of medical technology companies. AdvaMed Accel is dedicated to addressing your needs, delivering the best, most pertinent information, advocating a pro-growth policy agenda, and connecting you with key players inside and outside the beltway.

Medical technology is about small companies with big ideas – working to transform health care through earlier disease detection, less invasive procedures and more effective treatments – and that makes your job one of the toughest out there. Recruiting investors and partners, managing burn rate, navigating the regulatory environment, driving toward the next development milestone – chances are you’re doing it all.

AdvaMed can help.

Simply stated, it’s about capital and connections – and AdvaMed Accel membership opens the door to investors, potential partners and deal-makers who make the next level possible. From access to the industry’s premier investors… to one-on-one face time with CEOs… to meetings with senior level business development executives from the world’s largest medical technology companies; the Accel introduces you to key decision-makers.

Additionally, AdvaMed’s location in Washington, DC gives you direct access to Federal regulators and policymakers. Our extensive knowledge of US and OUS regulations ensures that you have the knowledge to stay in compliance and efficiently navigate the regulatory and reimbursement pathways most critical to your success.


Representing hundreds of emerging and early-growth companies, AdvaMed Accel has the collective voice and bully pulpit to advance your agenda. AdvaMed member companies manufacture nearly 90% of the health care technology products purchased annually in the nation. Leveraging the collective strength of our members, AdvaMed advocates for sensible public policy supportive of life-changing technologies on which the world is depending – technologies like yours. We use our influence, expertise and relationships to drive your agenda at the FDA, CMS, DOJ, as well as within Congress and international forums.


As an AdvaMed Accel member, you’ll stay informed about proposed changes to federal and state regulatory policy and how such amendments affect your business through AdvaMed’s communication channels. Our expert analyses help you to understand how changes may affect you. Not only will AdvaMed Accel membership provide access to up-to-date information on legislative, regulatory and reimbursement developments, but also sector trends, market data, state of the industry reports, and state-specific issues.

Communication with members is not one way. We actively seek feedback on regulatory and legislative proposals through our member committees. We offer nearly 100 working groups each year in areas of critical interest across all. These groups not only help focus AdvaMed’s advocacy efforts, but also provide valuable insights, a forum to share lessons learned, and the opportunity to forge relationships with colleagues from other leading medical technology companies.

In addition to all AdvaMed member benefits, AdvaMed Accel members also receive the following:

  • Significant discounts for Events and Education courses, such as our two-day 510(k) and Medical Device Reimbursement workshops, and one-day IDE and PMA workshops
  • Free webinars focused on emerging and early-growth companies on topics such as the Medical Device Excise Tax, Unique Device Identifiers, Physician Payments Sunshine Law, and others – with regulators and industry experts
