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.

The dinner is sponsored by the DCMS Foundation
, the medical society’s charitable foundation. All contributions for student meals are tax deductible.
