Meetings & Events

The Center for a Healthy Maryland, The Maryland State Medical Society Foundation, was established in 1976 to promote and support MedChi’s charitable, public health, and educational activities.
These activities help fulfill the medical society’s mission to serve as the state’s foremost advocate for physicians, their patients, and public health.
The majority of program activities are primarily funded by grants and contracts.


As of March 12th, our policy is to cancel/postpone/reformat all meetings and events in light of the current COVID-19 Pandemic.

The Thomas E. Hunt, Jr., M.D. History in Maryland Medicine Lecture was established in 2008 to honor Dr. Thomas E. Hunt, Jr., M.D. in recognition for serving as MedChi’s informal historian and longtime contribution to the care of the needy. 

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, The 2020 Hunt Lecture has been postponed.

The Annual Thomas Allen, M.D. Ethics Lecture was developed for the purpose of addressing professional ethics in healthcare. Topics are selected by the MedChi Committee on Ethics & Judicial Affairs, while the Center for a Healthy Maryland implements the program.

This program is funded through a grant provided by Dr. & Mrs. Thomas E. Allen, M.D.
