Understanding what the Washington State Medical Association is and what we do for physicians, patients, and the state of Washington.


What does the WSMA do?

We are a private, non-profit membership organization for physicians, physician assistants, resident physicians, and medical students. We are funded by membership dues, not by the state. We work on behalf of our members and their patients to provide educational seminars, advocacy efforts, lobbying, and other services.

Where are you located?

The WSMA has two offices, downtown Seattle and Olympia. Click here for address, phone numbers and driving directions.

I need to locate a physician. Can you give me their address and phone number?

To find a physician in your area, use Find a Doctor to search for a physician or physician assistant member by name, clinic, location, or specialty. Or you can email WSMA membership services at for assistance if the physician is a WSMA member.

How can I obtain a referral for a physician of a particular specialty?

The WSMA does not offer referrals. To find a physician in your area, contact your county medical society.

How can I file a complaint against a doctor, or find out if a doctor has any complaints against them?

Try to resolve the dispute with your physician or contact your local county medical society.

Where can I obtain information regarding proposed state or federal legislation?

Check our Legislative & Regulatory section or contact the WSMA's Olympia office at 800.562.4546.

Do you have a listing of job opportunities for physicians in Washington state?

Check out the WSMA Career Center.
