Advocacy

The SCMA is the voice for South Carolina physicians. We provide a constant presence at the State House and work hard to guide you through statewide and national issues affecting the practice of medicine.

CME Education

The SCMA is the only recognized organization in South Carolina by the ACCME to accredit other CME providers. We offer educational sessions as well as tools for maintaining compliance with CME requirements.

Professional Resources

SCMA subsidiary organizations offer products and services to help meet the needs of South Carolina physicians including financial and insurance resources, practice management solutions, and health insurance plans.

News & Events

SCMA signature events, our latest news, and premier publications such as MEDweek, The Journal, and the Palmetto Physician have one goal in mind: to keep South Carolina physicians informed.

Join the Conversation

The South Carolina Medical Association is the only membership organization in South Carolina that represents physicians of all specialties and geographic locations. The more members we have, the more powerful we can be together. By joining the SCMA, you are joining in the conversation to improve health care in South Carolina.

Dr. Gerald Wilson, MD
