Since our founding in 1781, the Massachusetts Medical Society has been the statewide professional association for physicians and medical students, with 25,000 members. We are dedicated to our mission of improving the health of the Commonwealth through legislative, public health, education, and policy advocacy on behalf of physicians and patients. Our goal is to provide the tools, information, and knowledge physicians need to provide world-class care to patients in a changing health care environment.
Today, the MMS is a respected leadership voice in health care, locally and nationally. Under the auspices of the NEJM Group, the MMS extends our mission globally by advancing medical knowledge from research to patient care. Our portfolio has evolved into the most trusted source of medical information in the world, consisting of our flagship publication, the New England Journal of Medicine (with the highest impact factor of any medical journal in the world), NEJM Catalyst and NEJM Journal Watch family of specialty publications, and our education products – NEJM Knowledge+, NEJM Resident 360, and accredited, comprehensive CME programs for health care professionals.
