Membership in the South Dakota State Medical Association includes automatic membership in one of 12 district medical societies. Being an active part of your local district gives members a great opportunity to network with local colleagues and impact health care in your home area. Many leadership opportunities are available within your local district.

District medical society membership is determined geographically, generally by where the physician lives, and dues amounts vary. 


The SDSMA encourages you to be a member of the American Medical Association to support South Dakota’s presence on the national stage as well as expand your professional base. The SDSMA receives a commission from the AMA if members join through the SDSMA office instead of the AMA directly. Help support the SDSMA by joining the AMA through your association.
