Make a Difference

ISMS helps medical students BE HEARD by giving you the same ability to submit ideas and vote on policy proposals that physician members have. ISMS is influential and effective in the Illinois General Assembly, other areas of state government, in the courts, and with private payers and other entities – and all this advocacy is driven by input from members like you.

By engaging with ISMS, not only can you change state and national healthcare policy, but you can shape the course of your own career as a physician by helping make Illinois a better place to live and practice medicine.
