The Kansas City Southwest Clinical Society (KCSWCS)
was founded in 1923 as a multispecialty physician association for the primary purpose of post-graduate medical education. The Society is thought to be one of the oldest postgraduate medical education organizations west of the Mississippi. It was developed when there were no medical schools in the city and individual physicians took on the task of developing an organization that could provide postgraduate education to physicians. The founding physicians wanted to promote, encourage and develop the educational advantages of the clinical material of Kansas City and to hold an annual clinical conference that would demonstrate and emphasize the progress of medicine.

The society continues to uphold the original standards. Today, KCSWCS is a regional professional medical society whose activities are devoted entirely to continuing medical education. It is completely independent and has no affiliation with any area medical schools or hospitals. Membership is open to physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants in all medical specialties. The society encourages scientific investigation and the application of medical research to medical practice by promoting and participating in the development of continuing medical education conferences for physicians engaged in the practice of medicine. The Society fosters the advancement of evidence based medicine and its incorporation into the daily practice of patient care by encouraging physicians to share knowledge and experience through continuing medical education activities both directly and jointly sponsored.

Our executive committee consists of physicians from different specialties, community practice settings and medical affiliations that collectively plan, organize and implement the CME activities for our regional healthcare membership and audience.
