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