|DCMS Member Benefits|
the duval county medical society exists for one reason:
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 Member Benefits:
NORTHEAST FLORIDA MEDICINE:The Northeast Florida Medicine journal is the only peer-reviewed medical journal produced by a County Medical Society in Florida, and it’s delivered FREE to all DCMS members. The monthly journal is an insert inside MD LIFE Magazine and provides FREE CME in every issue! That's a value of $55 per CME test! DCMS members are invited to participate in the journal as authors or peer-reviewers. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
CONTINUING MEDICAL EDUCATION:DCMS has a number of options for members to access CME credits. Every issue of Northeast Florida Medicine has free CME opportunities for members. CME events are also held throughout the year, giving members an opportunity to obtain live CME credits. When it comes time to record all that CME into the CE Broker website, you can take advantage of the DCMS Member discount, as well.
PHYSICIAN WELLNESS PROGRAM:
The Physician Wellness Program is designed to address the seriousness of physician burnout in our community. The DCMS Foundation offers a 24/7 wellness line (904-631-1446), through which DCMS members can access free counseling services. Our counselors are experienced in coaching health care professionals and offer flexible hours and availability. The DCMS also has a variety of online resources to address emotional stress and work burnout.
CAREER WEBSITE:Whether you are looking to expand your practice or looking to make a move, the DCMS career website is your access to the top medical job board in the country. Members can post jobs or resumes to the site at a discounted rate. To post a job, post a CV, or simply review current job opportunities, go to dcmsonline.org and click on the link on the home page.
LEADERSHIP ACADEMY:DCMS has a long history of physician leadership, from the Florida Medical Association to the World Medical Association, from pioneering private practices to hospital executives. The DCMS Leadership Academy is a program designed to give physicians the leadership skills necessary to be more effective employers, Board members and community leaders. The Academy is open to all physicians, but DCMS Members receive a substantial discount. To learn more, go to dcmsonline.org and click on DCMS Leadership Academy on the home page slider.
LIFE AFTER RESIDENCY CONFERENCE:Duval County is home to more than 400 medical residents every year. While these young physicians are working hard every day learning to practice medicine, the most common request we hear is for education about what happens AFTER Residency. The Life After Residency program is a one day seminar that shows residents the best way to transition to life after their program ends. Topics include finding the perfect job, negotiating the perfect contract and managing student loan debt. This program is FREE for resident members of the DCMS.
REFERRALS & MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY:The DCMS website is a go-to source for the public to find physicians. Residents can search our "Find a Physician" database by zip code and specialty at dcmsonline.org. You can also include a headshot and other important information in your profile! The DCMS also partners with the Jacksonville & Northeast Florida Healthcare Guide to provide special recognition for DCMS members.
MEMBERSHIP MAILING LISTS:Whether you are marketing an event or changing your office location, sometimes you need to communicate with your entire referral network at once. That’s where the DCMS Membership Mailing list can save you time and money. Members can receive a one-time use mailing list of members for only $125. That’s a savings of more than $1,300 (That’s like getting your dues for free for the next four years!)
DCMS MEMBERSHIP MEETINGS:Learn about the latest in medicine, receive updates on legislation that impacts your practice, get CME and share a meal with your colleagues and loved ones. Presenters range from local physicians to the President-elect of the American Medical Association. Be sure to add email@example.com to your safe senders list on email to ensure you receive information about the monthly meetings and other special events throughout the course of the year.
