Welcome to the Capital Area Medical Society

Established in the late 1800’s the Capital Area Medical Society (originally incorporated as the East Baton Rouge Medical Society) was one of the first Parish Societies to organize in Louisiana.  It was first affiliated with the Louisiana State Medical Society in 1878 and became a chartered component in 1903.  The society now stands as one of the largest component societies of the Louisiana State Medical Society.

The Capital Area Medical Society, a multi-parish organization, unites over 700 allopathic and osteopathic physicians, of all specialties toward the fulfillment of our mission:  To unite, serve and represent physicians as advocates for the well being of patients, for the health of our community and for the profession of medicine.
