We promote physician leadership, education, professional satisfaction, practice sustainability, and the public's health.

Don’t face the challenges of practicing medicine alone. Being a Pennsylvania physician is easier when the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PAMED) and your county medical society are your partner.

The Pennsylvania Medical Society is 16,000 physicians and medical students working together to:

  • Represent physicians in public venues including the government, insurance companies, and the media
  • Provide members with timely information, expert services, and professional support on medical practice issues
  • Advance public health, public policy, medical science, education, and ethics
  • Advocate for patients

We are governed by our physician members in our annual House of Delegates meeting and our Board of Trustees.

We work in partnership with a number of county and specialty medical societies. Our affiliates and subsidiaries serve the special needs of the medical community. They include:
