This program is a great deal for your group because you receive discounts on membership dues for all eligible physicians, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners in your practice. New members in your groupreceive a 25% discount on their first year of membership dues, and all current members receive a 10% discount on dues. There is one comprehensive renewal notice for all members in your practice or institution, and only one check for membership dues needs to be issued. There must be at least three eligible physicians, PAs or NPs in your practice.

If a physician leaves the practice and moves out of state, the VOS membership will be transferable to a new physician in the group. Any new members will immediately begin receiving benefits such as the e-newsletter, legislative updates, reduced registration fees at meetings, the online "Find a Doc" feature, and much more.

We will screen the list of physicians in your practice so that any members in your group who have already paid will not have to pay again this cycle. It’s not too late to add your practice to the growing list and save on VOS membership dues!  Please contact Greg Leasure, Membership Manager, at (804) 565-6305 or greg@societyhq.com with questions or to enroll in the group billing program.

Thank you for considering membership in the Virginia Orthopaedic Society for the physicians in your practice!
