CM Phil Mendelson and MSDC President Dr. Nevin

Join your friends and colleagues for a celebration at the 2022 MSDC Annual Meeting. This year's annual meeting will once again be in-person and full of opportunities to connect with your colleagues! 

We are delighted to host live a DC tradition older than the cherry blossoms and Washington Monument - the annual gathering of members. Join us as we inaugurate 2022-2023 MSDC President Dr. Susanne Bathgate and hear from current MSDC President Dr. Kirstiaan Nevin all of the great work your medical society has done this year to support you. We even have a few special VIP guests scheduled to join us.

This year's meeting will again take place at the AIA Event Center, steps away from historic DC landmarks. The meeting will begin at 6 PM with networking and reconnecting, followed by a short business meeting and closing reception.

Instead of VIP sessions, you will have an opportunity to support the Healthy Physician Foundation (MSDC's charitable entity dedicated to physician wellness) through a silent auction. More details to come.

Also new this year is the "Connecting Care with CRISP DC" experience. Learn how CRISP DC can help you and your patients receive the best care plus see what new features they can offer physicians.
