WHY JOIN KCMS?

Medical Society members easily connect with other physicians across the state. Membership provides access to advocacy, benefits, free social and educational events. Members have a greater impact on healthcare in WA State and beyond.

Quotes from our members, “Doctors cannot be passive observers ; we want to set the standards, not have someone else tell us what the standards are.”

“I’m a great believer in the physician as an advocate focused on the welfare of patients.”
