Mission Statement

The Young Physicians Section (YPS) is the voice of young physicians in the State of New York.

It accomplishes this mission by identifying and responding to needs and goals of young physicians as they seek to deliver the highest quality of care to patients. YPS advises the MSSNY on how to focus its resources to better serve the needs and goals of the young physician, provides the perspective of young physicians in policy processes, and educates young physicians on professional matters and on the structure and function of MSSNY and the Federation.

A young physician is defined as anyone age 40 and under who has completed residency training or anyone, regardless of age, who has completed residency training within the past eight years. In order to actively participate in the activities of the Section, a physician must be a member of the Medical Society of the State of New York (MSSNY) and the county medical society where he or she resides or practices.
