The South Island MSA Supports and advocates for medical professionals at Royal Jubilee Hospital and Victoria General Hospital. In 2020, half our 1,200 members were involved in our work. We leverage $500,000 in annual funding through the Facility Engagement Initiative to support and fund physician-led engagement projects, learning and networking events, Medical Staff and community meetings, and IHealth discussions. Annual dues support the Executive’s leadership time.
The Victoria Medical Society has been providing services and assistance to the local medical community and the general public for over 100 years. Traditional events, such as the Listerian Oration and the Island Medical Program Student Welcome Dinner, bring together members of our community in celebration and recognition. The Pemberton Operating Room is being restored as a medical history museum. Annual dues support the Society’s work.
