Medtech Salary Survey 2021: Full Report
Download MD+DI's report on medtech salaries in research and development, product design engineering, management, quality control, regulatory affairs, and production.

Do you wonder whether your colleagues in medtech are making more than you make? Is it time to ask for a raise? Is your salary as high as it should be for your position and level of experience?

Those questions and more are the reasons we conduct our annual MD+DI Medtech Salary Survey. Each year, we ask medical device and diagnostic industry professionals detailed questions about their salaries, bonuses, benefits, job satisfaction, job security, and more. This year's survey was fielded online from February 22, 2021, through March 29, 2021, with 252 respondents completing the survey anonymously. Responses were filtered so that only those working full-time for a manufacturer of medical devices, a manufacturer of in vitro diagnostics (IVDs), or a manufacturer of both medical devices and IVDs were included in the final analysis, resulting in 162 usable responses.

We’ve analyzed the data to reveal the overall median salary for medical device and diagnostic industry professionals as well as the median salaries for those professionals in research and development, product design engineering, management, quality control, regulatory affairs, and production. Results are also broken down by gender, experience, company size, and number of employees supervised. We also share average hours worked per week, median bonus, median raise, job satisfaction, and job search status.

Satisfy your curiosity now—read on for this year’s results.
