Do you want to help improve the practice of medicine in Louisiana? Orleans Parish Medical Society wants to put your ideas into resolutions for the 2018 meeting of the Louisiana State Medical Society House of Delegates. Any solutions you suggest could become a new law or regulation to improve medical practice in Louisiana.
Please email your ideas to OPMS firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, October 30th.
Thank you. -- Jim P.

When it comes to providing healthcare, there's no U.S. city (or Louisiana city, for that matter) that has dealt with more unique environmental, sociological and cultural challenges than those experienced by New Orleans, its physicians and their patients. That's one reason why Orleans Parish Medical Society (OPMS) plays an important role in helping to support the needs of the city's physicians.READ THE BLOG POST HERE >

In January 2017, the Louisiana State Medical Society (LSMS) House of Delegates voted to amend the LSMS Charter and Bylaws as they relate to their requirement for joint membership. Beginning on September 1, 2017, Orleans Parish Medical Society members will have a choice on how to spend annual membership dues. You may now choose to join either OPMS or LSMS or both.Membership in both organizations is encouraged but no longer required. The LSMS is the 17th state medical society to move away from the unified membership model, which was established in 1903. Additionally, each individual Parish Medical Society must determine their future relationship with LSMS by choosing to be designated as either a Chartered or an Affiliated Parish Society. After careful review and considerations of information and options provided by LSMS on "Local Independence", the Orleans Parish Medical Society board of directors has decided that OPMS will remain a "Chartered" Medical Society.Re-enrolling in Orleans Parish Medical Society:By October 1, 2017, you will be receiving information regarding re-enrollment in Orleans Parish Medical Society via mail and e-mail. We plan to make re-enrollment as simple as possible by providing stamp-addressed return envelopes and the option of enrolling using an electronic platform to re-enroll on the OPMS website, www.OPMS.org. We hope that you decide to remain an OPMS member and will encourage others to join as well.
