  • The DuPage County Health Department reports that a Wheaton resident in her 50s is the first human case of West Nile virus (WNV) in DuPage County for 2018.

    WNV is transmitted to people by infected mosquitoes. Approximately one in five people who are infected with WNV will develop symptoms such as fever, headache, body aches, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, or rash. Less than one percent will develop a serious neurologic illness such as encephalitis or meningitis.

    The most up-to-date information on WNV activity is available on the Health Department's website.

  • Homegrown Idea Set to Become Illinois Law

    By unanimous votes in both houses, the Illinois General Assembly approved and forwarded to Gov. Rauner, legislation to extend the time a patient can refill a prescription for a non-controlled substance from 12 months to 15 months.

    Originating with a proposal from our DuPage County Medical Society, the measure is intended to address the gap that can occur when patients who see their physician annually face the expiration of prescriptions for maintenance medications prior to their next yearly appointment. The change can assure availability of prescription drugs during the interval without extra calls to the office.

  • 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.

  • 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. Prescribers are urged to use the PMP to enhance their understanding of each patient’s prescription history, combat prescription drug abuse and curb "doctor shopping."

  • Traditionally DCMS membership has also required membership in the Illinois State Medical Society. That is now changing. This spring ISMS adopted a three-year pilot program that includes independence for county and state medical societies. So beginning with the 2019 membership year, you can join just our DuPage County Medical Society!

    Our mission hasn’t changed – advancing quality healthcare delivery, improving access to care, promoting education and professional collaboration among physicians, fostering improved physician-patient relations and enhancing public health. Join today to be an important part of these endeavors.

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


  • “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.
