While MCMS represents the interests of all physicians in any employment setting, there is a special interest in helping physicians in private practice to thrive. The medical society historically has been involved in many facets of private practice which have included launching and running a medical practice. This committee will look to find ways to increase physician, resident, and medical student knowledge on private practice. 

Why you should join:

  • Learn how to share tips and lessons learned from launching and running a private practice 

  • How to work with ACOs

  • How to buy into a practice, sell a practice, merge with another group

  • Recruiting and hiring staff, comparing different softwares that will help practices 

Practice Committee

Medical Student Committee:

At MCMS medical students from all five medical schools in Maricopa County are represented by a student member of each school. Student representatives from Mayo Clinic, Alix School of Medicine, University of Arizona, College of Medicine - Phoenix, Creighton University, Midwestern University, and A.T. Still University share ideas on how to better support medical students

Why you should join:

  • Share with the committee members better ways to engage medical students across Maricopa County medical schools

  • Share how MCMS can support medical students through different types of engagement throughout the year.
