  • The Veterans Health Administration published a Proposed Rule that would give full authority to four categories of APRNs: Certified Nurse Practitioner (CNP), Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Clinical Nurse Specialist (CNS), and Certified Nurse-Midwife (CNM).

    Full practice authority means that APRNs working within the scope of VA employment would be authorized, regardless of state or local restrictions, to provide services without the clinical oversight of a physician. The VA is under tremendous pressure to reduce veterans' appointment wait times and this Proposed Rule was anticipated -- the DCMS Board first shared its concerns with all members in February.

    We oppose APRN independent practice and strongly urge you to submit comments on the Proposed Rule by Monday, July 25.

The DuPage County Medical Society, established in 1918, is the professional organization for physicians in our community. Members are local physicians, medical students and residents dedicated to serving the healthcare needs of DuPage County patients. Members are also part of the Illinois State Medical Society, the leading advocate for physicians and patients across Illinois.


  • “The only explanation I can give for a DuPage County physician not being a DCMS member is that they simply don't know what they're missing! Building camaraderie with colleagues within and beyond your own specialty, learning pearls to improve patient care, advancing our profession -- investing in DCMS membership offers these opportunities and so much more.”

    Providing Student Scholarships

    Fifty years ago the DuPage County Medical Society led efforts to immunize our community against Polio – protecting thousands while prompting the creation of the DuPage Medical Society Foundation, a 501(c)(3) public charity. As our Foundation celebrates its Golden Anniversary, the $365,000 it has awarded in scholarships to area students in medicine and allied health professions remains tangible evidence of DCMS support for quality healthcare in our community, now and into the future.
