As the only membership organization that represents all South Carolina physicians, we strive for membership representation of all specialties across the state. Any physician that is licensed to practice medicine in the state of South Carolina can become a member of the South Carolina Medical Association.

Young Physicians

Because the SCMA understands that the beginning of your medical career can sometimes be the most challenging, we have created a Young Physicians Section to help you as you establish your career in medicine, with discounted membership rates for your first year as a physician.

Free Membership

Residents & Fellows

The SCMA established the Resident Section to provide resources to prepare medical residents for a successful career as a young physician. For a limited time, residents and fellows can join the South Carolina Medical Association at no cost.

Free Membership

Medical Students

Our students are the future of health care in South Carolina, that’s why we have created the Medical Student Section to support you during your years in medical school. At the beginning of their medical education, students automatically become members of the South Carolina Medical Association for free.
