The Columbia Medical Society, founded in 1854, has been making a difference for medicine in the South Carolina Midlands for more than 150 years. Today the Society has more than 700 physician members representing all specialties. Our members are dedicated to providing quality health care to the citizens of the greater Columbia metropolitan area.
The Society is a professional organization founded by and for physicians. As such, we are defined by and organized around physicians’ interests. Members have an interest in organized medicine and share the goal of maintaining high standards of clinical care.
Columbia Medical Society is chartered by the SC Medical Association and collaborates with SCMA to offer member benefits and services. Membership in Columbia Medical Society is voluntary. However, membership in a county medical society is a prerequisite for membership in the South Carolina Medical Association.
Columbia Medical Society Mission Statement
The mission of the Columbia Medical Society is to improve the profession of medicine through education, empowerment, support and information that builds knowledge, skill levels, and camaraderie among all physicians in the Midlands.
