SCMA House of Delegates

The SCMA’s House of Delegates (HOD) meets each year at the annual meeting and gives physician members from across the state an opportunity to gather as a professional group to present and debate policies that affect the practice of medicine and the delivery of patient care in South Carolina. All SCMA policy comes from the HOD. 

Board of Trustees

The South Carolina Medical Association, governed by the Board of Trustees and the House of Delegates, has numerous opportunities for physicians to become leaders. The opportunities are limitless for physicians to become advocates for organized medicine.
