The Volusia County Medical Society provides physician members with the tools and resources they need to effectively and efficiently navigate today’s medical maze.

The VCMS is extremely proud of our more than 100-year community presence. Spanning two centuries, the Society has had a significant impact on the lives and practices of physicians in Volusia County.

The VCMS was officially incorporated in 1949, although there are notes dating back to the late 1800’s that suggest that the unofficial beginning of the organization was just before the turn of the 20th century, just about the time of the first official Olympic games. Started by some of our area’s first physicians, the original members gathered to share information, discuss medical issues, and learned how to be better at their craft by working together. While methods of sharing medical information have most definitely evolved over the last 100+ years, the fundamental purpose of the Society remains unchanged.

Today, the practice of medicine is quite different from what our founding society members experienced. The independent practitioner is now more the exception than the rule, shadowed by larger group practices and hospital systems. In this ever-changing world of modern medicine, the VCMS must continually evolve to meet the personal and professional needs of all our physician members, regardless of what or how they practice the wonderful art and science of medicine.

The Volusia County Medical Society is a professional organization that serves the personal and professional needs of member physicians. As an organization, the Society is dedicated to professional health of our members, promoting the science and art of medicine, and engaging our members in their professional and personal communities.
