Sarasota County Medical Society Alliance (SCMSA)

Who we are

Our membership consists of and is open to spouses or significant others of physicians who practice in Sarasota County as well as physicians themselves. We realize the importance of camaraderie and community support through education and advocacy.

What we offer our members

We offer opportunities to develop friendships through special interest clubs, educational meetings and social events. We invite all members to serve and be involved at any level they choose. Family is important and our family picnic is a fun way for us to meet and enjoy meeting the whole family of our members. We keep in touch with our members throughout the year and strive to be there for them in happy times and sad.

We provide an annual directory containing all members of both the SCMSA and the Sarasota County Medical Society to each of our members.


Sarasota Medical Alliance Foundation

As an Alliance member you are also a member of our Foundation which is a 501© (3) not-for-profit Florida Corporation. We have created important community projects. Currently, we continue with our prescription drug awareness initiatives as well as our website series on mental health awareness. We work together with and support other local non-profits with health-education causes.

We also offer scholarships to outstanding local high school students at the Venice High School’s Medical Academy.

We teach a one-of-a-kind, comprehensive babysitting course for teens in our community, held annually at the Selby Public Library. Our program, entitled, “G.E.M.S” (Good Emergency Mother’s Substitute), has received numerous community accolades during the 23 years we have offered the course.

Our members and their spouses/significant others eagerly await our annual special event that benefits our Foundation and provides a fun-filled evening with friends and colleagues.”
