2016 represents a significant milestone for the Wisconsin Medical Society (Society)—our 175th anniversary! Created by an act of the Territorial Legislature in 1841, the Society has a rich and proud history advancing the science and art of medicine.
Today, the Society is the largest physician advocacy organization in Wisconsin, representing nearly 13,000 physicians statewide—an all-time high.
As a trusted health policy leader and professional development resource, the Society represents the unified voice of physicians on state and national health care issues through its advocacy efforts. It provides members with information needed to navigate health care legislation and regulatory changes and offers innovative physician education and practice management resources, in addition to accrediting continuing medical education programs.
Though the practice of medicine has changed in myriad ways over the past 175 years, one thing has remained constant: the Society’s mission to improve the health of the people of Wisconsin.
