When physicians join MSMS/SCMS, they are making a strong statement about leadership for physicians and advocacy for patients.  They understand that when policymakers consider issues affecting medical practice and patients, they want MSMS/SCMS leadership at the table.  MSMS/SCMS is the physicians voice, the physician's strength and the profession's best advocate during medicine's most turbulent times.  Currently MSMS/SCMS is at the forefront of a new passage in Michigan health care.  Health care is at a crossroads--the status quo threatens everyone, including patients, payers and physicians.  We know things need to change.  We seek a more cohesive system down the road, and we are defining how to get there.

The mission of the Michigan State Medical Society is to promote a health care environment that supports physicians in caring for and enhancing the health of Michigan citizens through science, quality, and ethics in the practice of medicine.


The SCMS is a component society of MSMS.  In order to be a member of the SCMS, physicians must also be a member of MSMS.
