As the only membership organization that represents all South Carolina physicians, we strive for membership representation of all specialties and locations 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.
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 including scope of practice, post-Medicare SGR, ICD transition, and ACA implementation.
Education and Compliance. The SCMA is the only recognized organization in South Carolina by the ACCME to accredit other CME providers. We offer our membership timely and resourceful educational sessions as well as tools for maintaining compliance with CME requirements.
Exclusive Information. SCMA signature publications including MEDweek, The Journal, and the Palmetto Physician, and our website, social media outlets, and more have one objective: to keep South Carolina physicians informed.
Legal Guidance. The SCMA’s Legal Resource Center provides an online question center, legal publications, and the Annual Health Law Symposium designed to answer common legal questions related to the practice of medicine.
Products and Solutions. SCMA subsidiary organizations offer products and services to assist and help meet the needs of South Carolina physicians including financial and insurance resources, practice management solutions, and health insurance plans.
