As a member of the Tulare County Medical Society you are part of a collective voice in our local community and as a member of the California Medical Association you are part of a collective voice in Sacramento and across the state.

TCMS/CMA is the unifying voice of physicians.  Your voice strengthens our representation and advocacy efforts at the table to create and maintain a physician-led, patient centered healthcare system in California.

Your membership allows us to continue our vigilance and fight against inappropriate health insurance company abuses, non-physician incursions into the medical profession and interference from regulators and lawmakers into the doctor-patient relationship. 

Benefits

Member physicians are pictured in The Directory along with Specialty, Education, Board Certification and Contact Information.  The Directory is provided to member physicians for free and widely distributed to physicians’ offices, community organizations, hospitals and citizens.  Member physicians also receive discounts on advertising in The Directory.

Through Vital Signs, member physicians receive local, state and federal information affecting them and the practice of medicine in general.  Vital Signs also includes communications from some of the organizations we partner with and local announcements and information of interest to member physicians.  Member physicians receive Vital Signs monthly and are welcome to submit articles for publication.

Benefits of Membership

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