IMS Membership

The Iowa Medical Society (IMS) is the largest statewide organization in Iowa representing over 6,000 physicians, residents, and medical students. As your healthcare environment becomes more complex, it becomes more of a challenge to care for your patients. IMS advocates on your behalf and provides resources you need to focus on caring for Iowans.

Physician Membership

The IMS offers several levels of physician membership including options for those in their first and second years in practice as well as retired physicians. All members receive benefits including toolkits, educational materials and other resources to help with the business and practice of medicine in today's evolving landscape. Plus, the IMS is actively engaged in lobbying on bills at the state and federal levels that impact the practice of medicine. Members can also take advantage of discounts and preferred pricing on services and solutions for their practice through the IMS Business Affiliate program. Learn More
