Step 1: Identify Physician Record
Understanding the Process
When you join the California Medical Association, you also join your local county medical society. If you live in one county and work in another, you will have a choice of which county society you want to join. Once the online application has been completed, your local county medical society will verify the information that you have provided, and follow up with any additional questions, if necessary. Your application must be approved at the local level before you are granted member status. In the meantime, you will have full website access while your application is being processed. If for any reason your application is denied, your money will be refunded (minus any county application fees). If you have any questions about this process, please contact your county medical society.
