Our function as a grassroots organization is to focus on the interests of physicians and the general health of the community. The society addresses issues of importance to our membership including physician ethics, physician/patient relationship, patient advocacy, and state and national legislation. We represent physicians in every specialty of medicine.

Founded in 1846 as the Rockford Medical Association, the Winnebago County Medical Society was organized in 1881 and chartered by the Illinois State Medical Society in 1903. We currently support a membership of 350 representing every specialty of medicine.
