MCMS: A short description
The Maricopa County Medical Society (MCMS) founded in February of 1892 and incorporated in 1935 is the oldest medical association in Arizona. MCMS is a physician led membership that for over 128 years has worked to provide advocacy, services and resources for physicians in Maricopa County. These services and resources have evolved over the years to meet the ever changing needs of physicians.
The mission of the 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, the Society 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.
Through these actions, members will have their current and future needs met in a manner that they cannot effectively undertake or achieve individually.
