ABOUT THE SCCMA and MCMS
The Santa Clara County Medical Association (SCCMA) and the Monterey County Medical Society (MCMS) are professional associations representing physicians and their patients in all modes of practice and specialties, including medical students and residents.
It is the mission of the SCCMA and MCMS to act collectively for our members by promoting:
- Excellence in the provision of quality, ethical health care;
- The health of our community;
- Physicians’ personal, social, and professional integrity and well-being; and
- The common goals of similar organizations.
Through our efforts, and those of the California Medical Association, we have provided the opportunity for physicians to focus more time on treating patients and less time worrying about the hassles of practice management. Organized medicine has helped preserve the cap on awards in medical malpractice cases, otherwise known as MICRA, resulting in stabilized malpractice insurance costs in California not enjoyed in other parts of the nation.
If you are not already a member, and you are an MD or DO, please consider joining today. Our strength and influence grows with our increasing membership, so please help do your part for organized medicine today.
