Get Involved In MSD Committees

The Medical Society of Delaware welcomes those members interested in involvement in MSD committees. If there is a committee on which you would like to serve, please indicate by checking the box of the corresponding committee. Some committees require election by the Council (Elected Committee), approval by the Executive Board (Standing Committee), or approval from the President (Special Committee), which may impact the turnaround time of the approval process. Some committees may also limit the number of members on the committee as indicated in the Society’s Bylaws. All committees welcome new members and some committees listed have been indicated with an immediate need for additional members.

Resident & Fellow Section

Additional RFS benefits include:

  • Speaker Services:  Scheduling an MSD speaker is a great way to help residents learn more about what’s going on in health care today and the business of medicine. Our staff is well versed in a variety of topics such as health care reform, student debt, work/life balance, getting involved in organized medicine and much more.

Physicians Emeritus Section

The Physician Emeritus Section of the Medical Society of Delaware was organized to facilitate the social and educational needs of senior and/or retired physicians and their wives. In addition, the Section includes the spouses of deceased members to allow them the opportunity to continue friendships that they have enjoyed throughout the years.

We meet for lunch three times a year at The University & Whist Club in Wilmington. Prior to lunch, the members socialize for a period of time. These luncheons are a continuum of the socialization that usually occurred at hospital lounges, lunchrooms & hallways during their active years in practice.

For more information on this Medical Society of Delaware section, please contact Mary LaJudice at (302) 224-5183 or email Mary.LaJudice@medsocdel.org
