The Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society

For more than 50 years, The Foundation of the Pennsylvania Medical Society has proudly served as the 501(c) 3 philanthropic affiliate of the Pennsylvania Medical Society. Its mission is to sustain the future of medicine in Pennsylvania by providing programs that support medical education, physician health, and excellence in practice.

The three core programs are:

  • Physicians’ Health Programs, which provide support and advocacy to physicians struggling with addiction or psychological challenges.
  • Canadian Pharmacy with its consistent provision of affordable medicines that supports the charitable healthcare initiatives.
  • Student Loan Program, which helps medical students fund their dream of becoming a physician, as well as Student Financial Services, which administers scholarship programs for medical students.
  • LifeGuard, which provides comprehensive and confidential physician clinical competency assessments and recommendations for remediation for physicians with identified quality concerns or who are seeking reinstatement of their license.

All of these programs are undergirded by philanthropy, helping physicians and others to achieve their charitable goals to benefit Pennsylvania’s medical community.
