Providing a unified voice for physicians in South Carolina
The SCMA strives to provide a unified voice for physicians at the South Carolina State House which is achieved through political advocacy combined with grassroots efforts. Between efforts from our legislative team and physician advocates to fight for important medical matters, and the grassroots efforts of our political action committee, SCMedPac, the South Carolina Medical Association is a powerful body at the South Carolina Legislature.
Doctor of the Day
During the South Carolina Legislative Session, South Carolina physicians have the opportunity to get involved by serving as the State House doctor of the day through the Doctor of the Day program established by the SCMA.
The Interspecialty Council is a valuable forum for debate on legislation that affects medicine in general, and also legislation that affects individual specialties. The Interspecialty Council is made up of a representative and an alternate from each of the medical specialties represented in the SCMA House of Delegates.
