We enjoy spending time together through our many activities. Whether you are a family with children at home, an empty-nester, in training, or in retirement, we have something for you.
We lend our time and talent by volunteering in the community. Through service we learn more about our neighbors and the many needs of West Michigan.
We advocate for public health and policy issues by partnering with local organizations, the American Medical Association Alliance and the Michigan State Medical Society Alliance.
Our Foundation has provided over $1.5 million in grants and mini-grants to local nonprofit organizations. We fundraise and distribute grants to organizations in need! Our work makes a difference.
Camaraderie & Support: We support physician families at all stages of life. You will receive invitations to join our fun, social gatherings that we hope you'll attend! We also help you celebrate your exciting milestones, mourn life's hardships, and provide support in any other way we can. When you have a need, please reach out!
Community Engagement: Several times a year we tour area non-profits that work to meet the health needs of our community. This is an incredible way to get behind-the-scenes access and learn more about inspiring work happening in West Michigan. We also do several hands-on volunteer projects throughout the year, and our charitable Foundation provides opportunities to give back to our community through our mini-grant program. The Alliance is a great way to learn about our community and get involved!
Education: As members of physician families, we are invested in the work of medicine, even if we aren't practitioners ourselves. KCMSA holds special educational events, raises awareness about important issues, and we advocate for the health and well-being of our vulnerable neighbors during our annual legislative action day.
Members receive our mailed Heartbeat newsletters & emailed Pulse updates.
We are the spouses and partners of physicians (training, practice and retirement), including M.D.s, D.O.s, medical students, interns, residents and fellows. You may also join if your physician spouse has died. You can join with an individual membership, or you can join as a couple!
