Learn Our History & Our Leadership

The Volusia County Medical Society

Is dedicated to bringing the physicians of Volusia County into one organization, promoting the science and art of medicine, and fostering the common interest of our members and the public.

Our History

The strength of this Society is grounded in its members and committees, who work for the general welfare of the practicing physician, the public, and the medical community as a whole. Established in 1902 with a handful of dedicated physicians, the VCMS has grown to more than 300 physicians who live and work in Volusia County.
