Delegate Admission

At TEDMED we call our attendees Delegates, because we curate the attendee body to broadly represent the different disciplines inside and outside the world of medicine. Since many of the challenges facing the future of health and medicine are complex social-medical issues, we value the power of multi-disciplinary discussion to create new ways of thinking and open up new opportunities to improve our future health.

If Delegate pass purchased prior to September 15, 2013, your Delegate Pass is fully transferable and refundable prior to January 1, 2014.   Delegate passes purchased on or after September 15, 2013 are non-transferable and non-refundable.


We offer reduced rates for military and government employees to attend TEDMED. If choosing this option, please verify that you work for the government by entering a government email address below.
