Founded in 1867, the New Brunswick Medical Society (NBMS) is the professional association representing all physicians in New Brunswick. It is a provincial division of the Canadian Medical Association (CMA).
Originally created in 1867, the NBMS has a two-part mission: to represent and service all practicing and future physicians in the province, and to advocate for the health of New Brunswickers.
The NBMS continues to advocate to improve healthcare delivery for New Brunswick patients. We have led the way in various initiatives such as the implementation of electronic medical records and the promotion of team-based healthcare delivery. We have also been successful in promoting healthy living initiatives and policy changes to protect youth from hazards like smoking and tanning beds.
All physicians practicing in New Brunswick must be registered with the College of Physicians and Surgeons of New Brunswick and be members of the NBMS.
