The North Carolina Medical Society Alliance was formed on April 18, 1923 as the Woman's Auxiliary to the Medical Society of the State of North Carolina. The first meeting for the Auxiliary was held in Asheville, NC and Sadie McCain of Southern Pines was elected as the first president. As early as the second Annual Meeting, held in Raleigh, the members began promoting an expanded role for the Auxiliary beyond their original purpose, which was primarily social. Some of the early programs of the Woman's Auxiliary included maintaining a bed at the State Tuberculosis Sanatorium near Southern Pines, observing "Doctors' Day," and starting a health education program and student loan fund.

During World War II, the Auxiliary collected surgical instruments and medical supplies to send overseas, sold Mercy Emblems for emergency medical field kits, and funded the U.S.S. Fremont battle dressing station. Their efforts were recognized in 1946 with a U.S. Treasury Department Award for Patriotic Service. Throughout the next five decades, the Auxiliary established more sanatorium beds, continued to raise money for student assistance, began a nursing recruitment program, sent medical books and supplies overseas, participated in civil defense projects, and participated in legislative projects, including the first "Day at the Legislature". In 1975 the "Woman's" was dropped from the organization's name, and in 1993 the "Auxiliary" became the "Alliance."

More recently, family health issues have taken the forefront. Domestic violence, media violence, drug abuse, tobacco use, and other issues have kept members busy in the counties and at the state level. Legislative issues continue to be of crucial interest. The members are dedicated to assisting physicians in their mission to serve the health care needs of the people of North Carolina on behalf of public health, medical education, and legislation.
