TEDMED is a global community of leading doers and thinkers from every walk of life. Our goal is to seed the innovations of today, making possible the breakthroughs of tomorrow.

We are best known for our annual three-day gathering that brings together inspiring speakers, powerful Delegates and innovative start-ups.

TEDMED curates an unusual and provocative program featuring brilliant short talks and stunning artistic performances that reframe our mental models and inspire important new possibilities. TEDMED also offers evening spectaculars, thought-provoking conversations with Delegates and Speakers, and a showcase of inspiring startups called “The Hive.”

The result is an immersive experience that allows us to recharge our brains, jumpstart new thinking, energize our work and enlarge our worldview. We come away from TEDMED better able to imagine new possibilities and solutions for the future of health and medicine.

TEDMED: One Event. One Program. Two Stages.

From September 10–12, 2014, we’ll bring together Delegates in Washington, DC and San Francisco for this year’s TEDMED gathering. Delegates in both cities will participate in a simultaneous, unified, digitally linked program with equal numbers of live Speakers. The University of California, San Francisco is TEDMED’s research institution partner for the West Coast. Read more.

The full stage program from both cities will be simulcast via “TEDMED Live” to 100+ countries. TEDMED Live is available free to thousands of medical organizations, academic institutions and government facilities worldwide.
