A robust, diverse, and healthy professional and practice environment is
necessary to ensure that patients and communities have access to
high-quality care when they need it. We achieve this by advocating on
issues of importance to our profession and our patients, providing
resources to make our jobs easier, creating space for us to network and
develop our professional skills, and enhancing the care we
provide—including addressing cultural and clinical issues that
historically have led to structural inequity.
It’s simple. Our mission is to advance strong physician leadership and
advocacy to shape the future of medicine and advance quality care for all
We are moving forward, together, and building a vibrant, stronger medical
profession and a healthy population.
The WSMA is your WSMA. See for yourself.
