Southern Illinois Medical Association

The Southern Illinois Medical Association, formed in 1874, is an organization of physicians and advanced practice healthcare practitioners. We provide medical student scholarships and have an annual autumn CME meeting. Find much more information in the menu section.

Our planned 2020 inperson Annual Meeting was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic

Our 1918 Meeting was also cancelled due to the Spanish Flu Pandemic.

An online Zoom video conference SIMA Business Meeting was held November 11th, 2020. The dues for 2020 and 2021 were combined at $50 and dues notices were sent in September.

Please express your opinion on the questions asked and provide your E-mail address on the dues notice when you return it – correspondence regarding this year’s meeting will be sent via E-mail or through the Website (which is referenced in the dues letter). One of the questions regarded changing to a Saturday meeting rather than the traditional Thursday meeting. As of the time of the video conference Business Meeting, 63% indicated Saturday while 37% wished to retain Thursday. Most returning their dues payment did not indicate a choice one way or another.

It was voted to continuing the current officers through 2021. Dr. Hopkins has been unable to pursue his agenda for SIMA due to COVID-19 and we feel his ideas are important and should have the opportunity for application.

The 2020 Scholarship recipients were announced and can be found on the Student Info and Scholarships page of the index.
