Membership in MSV has introduced me to other physicians in the commonwealth who have the same goals of improving patient care and medical practice.

Physicians are busy caring for patients.  Most aren’t able to take time from their practices for the advocacy work that is so vital to “making Virginia the best place in which to practice medicine and receive care”. MSV provides this advocacy. I know my membership helps make this possible. So...

My activities at the annual meeting and at White Coats on Call day have allowed me to be involved in the legislative process. I worked on Telehealth legislation in the past year with MSV. It was very gratifying to see that legislation was passed along the lines of what we at MSV advocated.

Looking back on my time with the MSV, I've realized more than ever that we are more than just classmates, more than just medical students in Virginia. We're a family - a family that has grown both in size and in solidarity - and one that I am proud to be a part of.

The Medical Society of Virginia gave me the opportunity to have my voice heard. My student membership in MSV equipped me with the tools I need to successfully advocate for my profession and future patients.

I have been a proud MSV member since 2011 when the House of Delegates voted to accept PAs into membership. This allowed me to benefit both personally and professionally. There are many reasons I appreciate MSV membership.  Annual participation with White Coats on Call is always memorable. The...

MSV promotes a sense of shared purpose and support in our efforts to provide quality medical care to our patients, while preserving our independence and providing a secure practice future.

My membership in the Medical Society of Virginia has been invaluable.  I’ve fostered close professional relationships, and cultivated true friendships since moving here with my family. I came to the MSV earlier in my career nearly a decade ago.  I had the privilege of being accepted into the...

MSV introduced me to other doctors and medical students across the state who are just as passionate about protecting our patients and enabled me to develop a lifelong network of peers.
