MSMA Constitution & Bylaws/Policies

In 1850, when the inhabitants of Missouri were fighting scourges of typhoid, malaria, smallpox, and diphtheria, physicians assembled to “devise a plan by which the entire medical profession of the State can be brought together.” Matters of importance that year were the passage of a good medical practice act; the establishment of a uniform system of registering births, marriages, and deaths; the control of dispensing impure drugs and competent inspections of medicines; and a liberal preliminary education for those entering the study of medicine.

Since MSMA's creation, the Constitution and Bylaws and Policy Manual have reflected the changes and modernization of Missouri's medicine.
