Our Mission

The North Carolina Medical Society Alliance is a nonprofit organization of physican spouses and physicians dedicated to advancing the health of North Carolinians through advocacy and action.

Organized in 1923, the North Carolina Medical Society Alliance (NCMS Alliance) is a 501 (c)(3) charitable volunteer organization of physician spouses and physicians dedicated to building healthy communities and supporting the family of medicine through community service. Membership is open to physician spouses and physicians as well as physicians in training and spouses of physicians in training.

Since the late 1990s, the NCMS Alliance has focused its efforts on programs dedicated to improving the overall health and development of our youth. These programs included a   statewide symposium with nationally-recognized experts on the forefront of child and adolescent development issues. Presenting topics from “Bullying: Stop the Bully Without Becoming One” to “Learning Differences: Ensuring Success for Every Mind,” the annual symposium strives to bring together teachers, counselors, policy makers, social workers, law enforcement personnel, parents, and others committed to securing a bright future for our children.  

The NCMS Alliance works to build effective public and private partnerships and develop resources for the annual symposium, the Get Fit NC campaign, the American Medical Association (AMA) Medical Scholars Fund and other programs to effect positive change across our state. The NCMS Alliance also supports county medical society alliances, provides leadership opportunities and training for its members and offers grants for health-related programs.

The NCMS Alliance is governed by its Board of Directors representing all regions of the state and is headquartered at the NC Medical Society building in Raleigh.
