Benefits of Membership

Enhance your practice, improve your bottom line, and protect your autonomy as a physician.

In addition to being the voice for local physicians with policymakers, the SCCMA provides resources and tools to support our members’ practices and improve patient care.

Influence – Policy, Advocacy and Compliance

  • Leading on Advocacy & Policy Development – SCCMA is one of the most influential county medical associations and carries a very large number of votes in the California Medical Association's House of Delegates. Your membership helps us play a major role in determining legislative priorities and policies in California.
  • Access to Influencers - Direct access to our local, state and national legislative leaders to influence how medical care is provided today and in the future.
  • Monitoring Regulations That Affect your Practice - Up-to-date information and resources about existing and emerging laws and regulations to arm you with the information needed for compliance.
  • Developing Visionary Leaders - Leadership opportunities abound with your county medical association, including on our council, special interest committees and task forces, and delegation to the CMA. There are also leadership opportunities within the CMA. In today’s legislative and regulatory environment, it’s essential that physicians are directly involved in health care leadership on all fronts.
  • Making Connections and Building Influence – We help you build the necessary skills to make connections and directly influence the future of the practice and the business of health care. 

Amplify Your Business and Your Brand

  • Rapid Response and Direct Intervention – Our extensive relationships throughout the health care industry allow us to swiftly respond to threats to your practice and your corporate brand.
  • Physician Referrals - In a consumer-driven world, patients have many options when it comes to health care.  Aligning your practice with SCCMA and CMA harnesses statewide and local influence which provides unparalleled exposure.  
  • Profiling Your Leadership and Initiatives - We will profile and promote our members in SCCMA and CMA publications, newsletters, website and social media channels. Members can publish research, practice advances, projects, and opinions in our physician magazine, The Bulletin.
