A Consistent Influence

For more than 100 years, the SMCMA has been a
constant voice for the local medical community


The mission of the San Mateo County Medical Association is to represent, inform, and serve physicians while promoting quality medical care for the people of San Mateo County.

Advocating for Physicians in San Mateo County

Founded in 1905, the San Mateo County Medical Association (SMCMA) is the oldest and largest physician organization in the county. SMCMA represents more than 1,600 physicians in all specialties, practice types, and stages of their careers with the goal of improving the physician’s ability to deliver the best care possible.

The SMCMA is dedicated to serving our member physicians through a comprehensive program of legislative, legal, regulatory, economic and social advocacy, both locally and at the state legislature through the California Medical Association.  In today’s economic climate, physicians are being assailed from many directions. Our goal is to provide our members with the support necessary to allow them to focus on providing quality patient care.

In addition to serving as the voice of the medical community to local and state policy-makers, SMCMA supports members’ practices through a variety of practice management resources, coding and reimbursement help, training, and up to the minute news that could affect your practice.

If you’re already a member, we thank you for your continued support, and encourage you to get involved by playing a role in the vitality of this important organization.

If you’re not yet a member, we invite you to join us today.
