The Medical Device Innovation Consortium (MDIC) is the first-ever public-private partnership created with the sole objective of advancing medical device regulatory science for patient benefit. Formed in late 2012, MDIC brings together representatives of the FDA, NIH, CMS, industry, non-profits, and patient organizations to improve the processes for development, assessment, and review of new medical technologies. Our work is unique and complementary to trade associations such as AdvaMed and MDMA.
