    The Medical Humanities Committee is now accepting submissions from Spokane-based residents, medical students and community physicians for its annual Spokane Essay Contest. A generous contribution from the Shikany Endowment has led to the establishment of an annual essay contest entitled “On Being a Physician”, with a $500 prize. The purpose of the essay is to encourage Spokane-based residents, medical students and physicians to reflect on how interactions with patients have led to personal growth as a physician.  For rules, regulations and additional information, Physicians click here and Resident/Medical Students click here.






President's Message

Picture of Clinton Hauxwell

By Clinton Hauxwell, MD | SCMS President

As I sit down to write my final article as president of SCMS, I look back on a year filled with with both opportunities and challenges. It has been an honor to serve in this roll for the past year; I have been inspired by the many individuals who commit their time and energy supporting local medical providers and patients. But this has not been an easy year for your medical society. The largest healthcare organizations in Spokane no longer cover the cost of membership for employed physicians; this has had a negative impact on membership and finances at SCMS. We have begun to reexamine our goals and priorities, and this evaluation process continues.
