About Orleans Parish Medical Society (OPMS):
Founded in 1878, the mission of Orleans Parish Medical Society is to serve as the voice of and advocate for the medical profession in the Greater New Orleans area for the benefit of patients and the community, and to be the primary proponent of the ethical practice of medicine.
Orleans Medical Society's heritage is rich and woven into the fabric of New Orleans. Its impact has been felt in the public health arena as a leader in polio eradication, the smoking cessation movement, and EMS protocol development and oversight. In the medical practice environment, OPMS, together with the Louisiana State Medical Society, has advocated for significant legislative and regulatory reform to help physicians address the changes which have come with third-party insurance and government mandates.
