Chester County Medical Society Benefits

The Chester County Medical Society (CCMS) is affiliated with the Pennsylvania Medical Society (PaMedSoc).  Membership in the PaMedSoc includes membership to CCMS.  Both local CCMS services and PaMedSoc benefits are available to CCMS members.

CCMS membership is available to all Chester County physicians who either live or work in Chester County.  Membership is also available to residents, fellows, medical students, practice managers, and administrators.
Memberships for both CCMS and PaMedSoc are processed on the Pennsylvania Medical Society website.

CCMS leadership and staff are committed to addressing the issues confronting medicine today.  We need your support and participation to speak with one voice on behalf of all Chester County physicians and their patients.  Please join CCMS if you have not already done so.  It’s the only local, physician society for all physicians, all specialties, employed or independent whose only mission is to improve physicians’ work lives and advocate for them and their patients.
