Purpose, Mission and History

Founded in 1886, NMMS is the professional organization for medical and osteopathic doctors in New Mexico.

While NMMS activities and emphases change, the mission does not.  As stated in the NMMS Constitution, the purposes of the Society are to extend medical knowledge and advance medical science, elevate the standard of medical education, secure enactment and enforcement of just medical laws, uphold the principles of medical ethics of the American Medical Association, and keep members of the profession always cognizant of their unique influence on society.
