Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society
The Sierra Sacramento Valley Medical Society (SSVMS) is dedicated to bringing together physicians from all modes of practice to promote the art and science of quality medical care, and to enhance the physical and mental health of our entire community. In continuous operation since 1860, SSVMS is the oldest medical society in California with over 3,500 physician members in Sacramento, El Dorado and Yolo Counties. SSVMS is a nonprofit organization, and is a component society of the California Medical Association.
SSVMS provides many benefits to our members by advocating for physicians and their patients to ensure access to quality healthcare. We achieve this through: dedicated physician led committees; a 44-member delegation that develops and recommends healthcare policy positions at the local, state and national levels; providing economic guidance, legal assistance and practice management to help physicians and their practices; hosting events throughout the year to provide physicians fellowship and professional development opportunities; providing programs that help physicians reclaim the joy of practicing medicine; facilitating philanthropic programs that are committed to supporting the future of medicine and providing access to care to those in need. In essence, SSVMS’s core activities help physicians increase their bottom line, connect with fellow physicians, and allows them to focus on what’s most important; caring for their patients.
