President's Message


The Medical Society of Metropolitan Portland has a long and illustrious history, from its inauguration June 10, 1884, to the current high-tech and highly- connected era.

 As the policy-making body of the society, the purpose of the Board is to represent the needs and desires of the organization, but also to provide creative, insightful and rewarding avenues for our members to explore.  We will seek ways to re-envision and recreate what excited us about medicine in the first place and what continues to draw our passion.  The purpose of the Board is to spearhead changes, encourage expansion, and find ways to enhance the environment and community of science at the same time that we embrace our literate, artistic, musical, humanistic and altruistic selves.

Toward that end, the Medical Society will this year grant the first annual Rob Delf award to an individual who espouses the ideals and character of Rob Delf, CEO of MSMP for over 30 years.  In addition, this year will see the final strokes laid to the first grant created specifically to enhance arts and humanities in the medical community.

 We hope to engage our members in the creation of a showplace for their art, whatever that may be.  In addition, we hope to increase our understanding of our society and its members, who they are, how they think, and ultimately create a “big picture” showcasing the diversity of the society.

This is a talented, diverse, engaging, hopeful, and noble group filled with energy and creativity.  Even if we only scratch the surface of all we have to offer, we can make a difference.

Medicine, and society, is changing.  It is up to us to take the reins and makes those changes count for us.
