Membership

The Vanderburgh County Medical Society is devoted to improving the professional status of physicians in our community. The rewards of membership come from the knowledge that you have joined other physicians that practice or live in Vanderburgh County to advocate for quality medical care for all our citizens. Together we can make a difference!

Benefits of membership include:

  • Inclusion in our online pictorial membership directory. Your name, picture, address, and other information will be available in a searchable format online as long as you are a member.
  • Advocacy for physicians and patients at the State and National level. Making your voice heard at the State and National level is of utmost concern at the Vanderburgh County Medical Society. Together we can change legislation in positive ways for the medical profession and together we can also stop harmful legislation that impedes our ability to practice medicine.
