  • New Illinois law will require ALL prescribers with controlled substance licenses to enroll in the Prescription Monitoring Program by January 1, 2018.

    The Illinois Prescription Monitoring Program (PMP) is an electronic tool that collects information on controlled substance prescriptions, reported on a daily basis by retail pharmacies dispensing in Illinois.

  • Domestic violence is becoming much more commonplace - 200,000 victims in DuPage - and the lethality is also significantly greater. Last year six DV victims were killed here. Annually, 29,000 children in our community witness acts of domestic violence.

    For physicians the message is clear - we have important opportunities to intervene. "It's critical that physicians ask the DV question," Judie Caribeaux, executive director of Family Shelter Service said. "There may be reluctance to engage, but no solution is needed in that moment. Just know that the FSS phone number will provide access to needed resources for the victim." The hotline is 630.469.5650.

    Family Shelter Service will also provide on-site training for medical office staff.

The DuPage County Medical Society, established in 1918, is the professional organization for physicians in our community. Members are local physicians, medical students and residents dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of DuPage County patients. Members are also part of the Illinois State Medical Society, the leading advocate for physicians and patients across Illinois.


  • “I joined to better understand the commonality among physicians and to better focus my and others’ resources on what we all share as physicians practicing in Illinois. I have learned so much from everyone and have hopefully helped others understand the challenges of my specialty, but most importantly made new friends. And together, we are trying to make everyone’s professional life more fulfilling. Who would not want to be a part of that?”

    Our Foundation

    Providing Student Scholarships

    Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.
