Due to the evolving COVID-19 situation, and recommendation from local and state health officials, DCMS has cancelled all in-person events until further notice. The health and safety of our members is extremely important to us.

In the words of our current DCMS president, Dr. Mark Casanova, “I have no doubt Dallas County physicians and our Medical Society overall will face the current challenge with devotion, vigor, and compassion. In that sense, our citizens will be well served. For you, personally, my friends and colleagues, my ask is that you take care of yourselves, love yourselves, and know that you are loved and appreciated.”

In lieu of in-person events, DCMS is excited to offer a virtual speakers series with relevant and inspiring content. These webinars will be the 3rd Thursday of every month and our goal is to offer CME during each session. CLICK

Family Picnic Celebration

All DCMS physicians and their immediate family members are invited to a fun afternoon at the Dallas Arboretum. For a nominal fee per family, all our guests receive admission to the Arboretum, parking, lunch, and activities for adults and children. Door prizes are provided by our DCMS Circle of Friends.

Installation Dinner

The installation dinner is a wonderful evening where we celebrate the installation of our DCMS president and recognize the service of the immediate past president. It is a tradition for all DCMS past presidents to participate in the ceremony. Two awards also are presented at this dinner — the Charles Max Cole, MD, Leadership Award and the Millard J. & Robert L. Heath Award.

Medical Student Dinner
On the Sunday after the first week of medical school, DCMS welcomes freshman students to the family of medicine at the annual Medical Student Dinner. Almost 250 medical students from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center and third-year Texas A&M students studying at Baylor University Medical Center are joined by practicing DCMS physicians who pay for the students’ dinners. The dinner is sponsored by the DCMS Foundation
, the medical society’s charitable foundation. All contributions for student meals are tax deductible.

Member Roundup
This annual family gathering is our largest event. All DCMS members and their immediate families are invited to a fun evening at the Dallas Zoo. Along with a delicious dinner, entertainment is provided for kids of all ages. This event brings together hundreds of DCMS physicians and their families from throughout our membership area. Door prizes are provided by our DCMS Circle of Friends

Networking Socials
DCMS members can spruce up their referral base and network with their DCMS colleagues several times a year at our networking socials. To accommodate physicians throughout our membership area, these events are held at venues in different parts of Dallas County.

Night out with the Texas Rangers
DCMS hosts members at a Texas Rangers baseball game at Globe Life Stadium in Arlington in May. DCMS reserves a party suite on the first base line and tickets include dinner.

For a nominal fee, each attendee is provided lunch, drinks, popcorn, and a movie ticket. We encourage members to submit suggestions for movies to be shown at future Reel Docs events.

Retired Physicians’ Club
In 1998, DCMS formed the Retired Physicians Club to foster fellowship and collegiality among our retired members. The club meets four times a year at the Park City Club to enjoy lunch (for a fee) and hear a speaker.
