Check us out on Facebook and Twitter


The Bexar County Medical Society has made the leap into the cyber realm of social media. The society now has its own Facebook page and Twitter account, so anyone who is a registered user of these sites can 'like' or 'follow' our page and check in regularly for new posts, announcements and links to items of special interest to the medical community. 

The new Facebook page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/bcms.org. On Twitter go to https://twitter.com/bcms_org. But as mentioned earlier, you must be a registered Facebook or Twitter user to view the page and its contents.


For those who are unfamiliar with these social media tools, you can be reassured that it is a relatively painless and cost-free process to set up an account. You will be asked for basic information and a working email address, but you do not have to share this information online if you do not want to. Facebook allows you to control the privacy settings on anything that you post so that it can be viewed by as many or by as few people as you choose. You can even post things that can only be seen by you. Or you can choose not to post anything at all.






What does BCMS do for you?


The Bexar County Medical Society is the oldest county medical society in Texas with a history dating back to 1853. Today the society represents more than 4,500 doctors in Bexar and the surrounding counties and provides a wealth of services including political advocacy and legal counsel while also serving as a historical repository and communications outlet.


BCMS Executive Director and CEO Stephen C. Fitzer has summarized the Value Proposition of BCMS in an excellent article that can be found here. We would encourage you to read the article and then check out the latest issue of San Antonio Medicine magazine to get a more complete understanding of what BCMS does and the services it provides to its members on a regular basis.
