The Oklahoma County Medical Society is a physician services organization, which is comprised of 1,600 Oklahoma County physician members. The Society interacts with the membership and the lay public on a daily basis. The laity direct and place their medical questions, concerns and complaints at the doorstep of the County Society.
Purpose The purpose of the Society is (1) to promote the art of science and medicine and the betterment of public health and (2) to unite with other county medical societies in the State of Oklahoma to compose the Oklahoma State Medical Association. For more than 100 years, the OCMS has been devoted to its physician members, as well as serving the citizens of Oklahoma County.
"Organized medicine has been the mainspring of our progress. It is the mainspring because its fundamental tenets require that those who take part in its activities must be honorable and upright physicians who are seeking the truth and who are willing to do their part of the work that must be done. In organized medicine, the most important unit is the County Society, for here physicians meet upon common ground for the purpose of mutual study, encouragement, stimulation and progress."
