What We Do

Physicians

We are focused on physicians’ interests in Oklahoma County and the greater community. For more than 100 years, OCMS has been devoted to its physician members, as well as serving the citizens of Oklahoma County.

OCMS provides early career physicians with training for leadership within the healthcare environment. More than 100 physicians have been through the highly-rated Physicians Academy. Additionally, the stress of mental health can negatively impact a physician’s well-being. That’s why OCMS offers free counseling sessions with a licensed psychologist for members, residents and students. We work hard to ensure our members (and future members) have access to the care they need.

OCMS has a long history of incubating worthwhile community projects, providing resources to help them get started. Organizations like OBI, EMSA, Hospice of Oklahoma County (now INTEGRIS Hospice), Healthy Schools Oklahoma, Health Alliance for the Uninsured, and ITNCentral Oklahoma all started through OCMS. Connections are important. OCMS helps physicians connect on professional and personal levels with our membership meetings and collegiality events.

We are proud to be unified with the Oklahoma State Medical Association. Both organizations work hard to help make the lives of physicians easier. We encourage you to learn more about their benefits, which include incredible CME courses and robust advocacy on behalf of physicians.
