Vision: Help physicians practice high quality medicine in our community

CCMS is a physicians’ professional organization, and therefore is organized and defined by physicians’ interests. Membership is voluntary and physicians are not required to be members to practice in the county. Membership brings together those physicians who have an interest in organized medicine and share the same goals of maintaining high standards of clinical care in our community. Active, retired, and resident physicians are eligible for membership.

The Medical Society is affiliated with the Florida Medical Association and the American Medical Association. CCMS enjoys close working relationships with medical facilities and many vendors in the county, who also support our efforts and those of our 501c3 charitable organization, The Foundation of CCMS. The Medical Society strives to act in the best interests of physicians, patients, and the public.
