Rural Physician Section

The rural physician members of the Oklahoma State Medical Association (OSMA) comprise one-third of the physician members of the Association, representing approximately 1,276 MDs and 80 DOs for a total of 1,356 members.    This number excludes honorary, student and resident members.   All members of the OSMA are required to join through one of the 45 county medical societies as defined through the OSMA.  Of the 43 rural county medical societies, approximately two-thirds (23) of the societies charge dues (ranging from $3 to $100), have elected officers to represent their local society and have some type of meeting (monthly, quarterly or annually).  The other 20 societies do not charge dues and most do not have elected officers or any type of formal structure to address membership issues.
