Welcome to the Medical Device Packaging Technical Committee (MDPTC) site page! We're in the 4th quarter of the year, and some of us are calculating how to use up our FSA balances! The MDPTC Board has been working with our program leaders and industry partners to bring more value to the organization's goals.  Each quarter, we'll bring you highlights of events and key updates on programs, all of which promote medical device packaging education and professional networking. 

Did you know?  

  • MDPTC wins the IoPP Technical Committee of the Year! Congratulations to our membership - your engagement and leadership in the industry counts!
  • Our last All Members Virtual Meeting was held Sept. 9.  Don't miss the next opportunity to hear MDPTC updates and engaging presentations/breakouts!  MDPTC announces Nick Fotis as the 2021 IoPP MDPTC Honor Awards recipient and the late John Kesig with a "Certificate of Recognition," in recognition of their leadership, technical contributions, and lifetime dedication to the medical device packaging industry.
  • MDPTC presented virtually for the IoPP Southeastern Chapter (Atlanta) on Sept. 3 on Leading Change with context of how the medical packaging industry is impacted and responded in the pandemic.  We had another great networking event via Zoom at Halloween!  Be sure to sign-up for the next one and meet other medical packaging professionals.  We have a new ACTIVE MDPTC LinkedIn page!  We're phasing out the current MDPTC LinkedIn Group site in first quarter 2022, so switch over now.  Follow us!
