Helping you reach more than 11,500 physicians and medical students in the Greater Houston area.


How can they find you?

Did you know that HCMS is the largest county medical society in the country? We have over 7,500 practicing physicians in our membership, making up close to 65% of the physicians practicing in the Greater Houston area. 

In addition to publishing  our Buyer's Guide and newsletter (circ. 9,500) where you can advertise and market your business, we also produce two business expos per year where you can exhibit to physicians interested in the business of medicine (around 200 attend each show). We also have a number of social events where sponsors have the opportunity to market their business and network with the physicians. Web advertising is also available. And when you are ready to take your visibility to the next level, there is our Friends of the Society program.

Whether you want to maintain consistent visibility, or are just breaking into the market, HCMS can help you reach this vital demographic in Houston.


Nothing beats face to face interaction.
