The New Hanover-Pender County Medical Society invites qualified men and women to join our organization. We encourage you to apply for membership in the local group as the first step to associating with thousands of other physicians who care deeply about the integrity of medicine. It is only as individuals joined together that physicians will continue to have a voice in determining the future course of health care.

The procedure for attaining membership is as follows:


  • Complete  written application, including curriculum vitae, with all years, from college to present, and the signatures of three  New Hanover-Pender County Medical Society member physicians. Practicing physicians without local hospital admitting privileges may be asked to provide additional credentials.


  • The applicant is nominated, through his/her endorsers' signatures, at a General Meeting. Attendance at this meeting is requested for purposes of introduction.


  • The application is reviewed by members of the Board of Censors who consider the prospect’s qualifications and make a recommendation concerning membership to the Society.


  • The nominee’s application is voted upon by the Medical Society membership at the next meeting following the one during which the nomination was made, if possible.

If you are interested in becoming a candidate, please complete the application linked above in step one. If you have any questions please call (910) 790-5800 or email us at
