Welcome to El Paso County Medical Society
The El Paso County Medical Society (EPCMS) was established in 1898, with a membership of approximately 800 physicians, residents, and medical students. It is the professional organization for physicians in El Paso County. The Executive Board is the governing body of the EPCMS.
The activities of the El Paso County Medical Society (EPCMS) must be in compliance with our mission statement and six goals, which were established by our members and are reviewed annually.
"The purpose of this Society shall be to unite and bring into one organization those physicians of the El Paso County as provided in the Constitution and Bylaws: to unite with similar societies in Texas to form the Texas Medical Association, to extend medical science; to elevate the standard of medical practice; to enlighten and direct public opinion so that this society and its members may become more useful to the public in the prevention and cure of disease; to secure the enactment and enforcement of legislation that will provide the best practice of medicine; to foster good relations among its members. The Society shall have the right and authority to promote proper relations among its members and to these ends enact bylaws regulating such matters."

If anyone would be kind enough to assist with volunteer positions at the PLFSOM/TT Rota-Care Clinic one Saturday a month. The hours are 9 am - 1
pm. The address is 301 S. Shutz St., (915) 790-0700. The Rotary International celebrated their 100th anniversary by collaborating with PLFSOM/TT Medical students and established this clinic a year ago in order to provide free medical care to those that have the greatest need and least access. Since launching the project the clinic has become increasingly stressed with patients and in need of more Medical Doctors to assist with the mentoring, teaching and involvement with the clinic.
If you are interested or know anyone that might be, please contact Dr. Lyndon Mansfield at (915) 544-2557 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for any assistance that you might be able to provide this worthy cause.
