Our Mission

The mission of Maricopa County Medical Society (MCMS) is to promote excellence in the quality of care and the health of the community, and to represent and serve its members by acting as a strong, collective physician voice.

 

In fulfilling this Mission, MCMS will initiate, respond to, and implement efforts through which professionalism in medicine is enhanced; the ethics of medicine are fostered and preserved; the patient's rights and choice are supported; and quality practice of medicine is preserved. 

More about our History. MCMS owns its building in midtown Phoenix, runs businesses that support the medical community, and oversees a 501(c)(3) non-profit Academy of Medical Science of Maricopa County.

Board of Directors

John Prater, DO

Board President

Welcome to the Maricopa County Medical Society!

 

It is with great pleasure that I serve as the President of the Maricopa County Medical Society (MCMS) for 2021. Our goals are to:

  • Aggressively campaign to increase membership by underscoring what we can do with strength in numbers, and by pointing out the advantages of membership.

  • Collaborate more closely with ArMA and AOMA and other physician-led organizations in Arizona to address and challenge issues that adversely affect patient care and physician practices.

  • Promote complimentary CME programs co-sponsored by MCMS and our partners that will address common clinical issues confronting physicians.

  • Continue the MCMS community outreach program for physicians, patients, and public health entities to maintain the primary role of MCMS in supporting physicians who provide care in the community.
