Massachusetts Medical Society: House of Delegates (HOD)

House of Delegates (HOD)


The HOD is the policymaking body of the MMS. Members of the MMS HOD serve as an important communications, policy, and membership link between the MMS and grassroots physicians. Each delegate is a key source of information on policies, activities, and programs of the MMS. The HOD meets twice a year — in the spring and fall — for two days.

About the HOD 


The HOD is composed of delegates elected by the district medical societies and in addition:

  • One delegate from each designated medical specialty society
  • Two delegates from the student membership of each medical school in the Commonwealth
  • Eight delegates from the Resident and Fellow Section
  • One delegate from the Academic Physicians Section, the Early Career Physicians Section, the International Medical Graduates Section, the Minority Affairs Section, the Organized Medical Staff Section, and the Women Physicians Section
