Founded by five physicians in Detroit in 1819, with the mission “to elevate professional medical education and to cultivate the advancement of medical science,” the society moved to its Lansing headquarters in 1961. Today, the Michigan State Medical Society is the voice of more than 15,000 physicians in Michigan, giving them the resources and clout they need to remain leaders of the health care team and advocates for their patients.
