DCMS Member Benefits


the duval county medical society exists for one reason:
to help physicians care for the health of our community.

The Duval County Medical Society was founded in 1853 by Jacksonville physicians hoping to come together to solve a public health crisis. In the more than 160 years since, DCMS physicians have led the way in caring for the health of our city, state and nation.

DCMS Members have been leaders in organized medicine around the world, including numerous presidents of such groups as the Florida Medical Association, American Medical Association and World Medical Association. 

By joining the DCMS, you are joining a legacy of daring and caring leaders who have helped to transform the delivery of healthcare across the world.

…and we’re not done yet. DCMS continues to develop future leaders in healthcare with programs for everyone from residents to seasoned professionals. We look forward to helping you see the future of medicine, and helping you care for the health of our community.


dcms members have access to a number of exclusive benefits.
