Welcome to the Palm Beach County Medical Society!

PBCMS is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to uniting physicians to serve the common interest of the profession, developing and maintaining the highest professional and ethical standards of the medical profession, advocating the interests of physicians and their patients, and collaborating with others to improve the community’s health.





Each year 1st year medical students are presented with a “white coat” at a special ceremony sponsored by FAU Charles E. Schmidt College of Medicine.  PBCMS would like to present each of the 67 incoming medical students with a stethoscope at the White Coat Ceremony.

Thank you for your generous support of the incoming FAU medical students by purchasing a stethoscope.
