The Victoria Medical Society website is used as an informational resource — both for physicians in the Greater Victoria area and for the community at large.

Interest to Physicians

It is the objective of the VMS to keep physicians informed concerning such issues as:

  • The VMS Calendar of Events
  • General Announcements
  • CME events
  • Progress and current status of the Pemberton Memorial Operating Room Restoration

Interest to Patients

The VMS website provides an up-to-date list of physicians in the Greater Victoria and surrounding areas who are accepting new patients.

The Victoria Medical Society has been providing services and assistance to the local medical community and the general public for over 100 years.
