The El Paso County
Medical Society

We are here to improve our community's health by empowering physicians though education, advocacy, and engagement.

Our Story

In 1879, the El Paso County Medical Society (EPCMS) was formed.  Throughout the years, our mission has always been one of  advocacy for the health care profession.  The cultivation of communication among and between health care providers as well as within the communities they serve has been a vital role of EPCMS.

About Us

Welcome from your President

Welcome! I am Dr. Nick Piantanida. It is my pleasure to volunteer as the EPCMS Board President.  I also serve this wonderful Colorado Springs community as a practicing Primary Care and Sports Medicine physician.

Our Mission

Today the Mission of EPCMS, “To empower physicians through advocacy, education and engagement” allows the Society to facilitate a collaborative network of one of our community’s most essential resources – our physicians and their medical practices. We bring together a cohort of community partners and sponsors to support these goals in support of both clinical and non-clinical member needs.
