Paul is Chief Executive Officer of the San Diego County Medical Society (SDCMS), the professional association for physicians in San Diego.  Founded in 1870, SDCMS currently counts over 4,500 physicians and medical students as members. SDCMS — “Physicians United for a Healthy San Diego” — fights for access to quality healthcare for all San Diegans.

Paul joined SDCMS after five and a half years with the California Medical Association (CMA), where he served in the roles of lobbyist, vice president of the political affairs, membership, marketing, and communications departments. During his tenure, CMA reversed a 20-year trend of declining membership, posting a 15% membership growth and the largest total membership in the history of the association.

Hegyi serves on the Executive Committee of Champions for Health, a 501c3 subsidiary of the San Diego County Medical Society dedicated to improving community health and supporting physician volunteerism.  He is also a member of board of San Diego Health Connect, the San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce Policy and Health committees, San Diegans for Healthcare Coverage, the San Diego Lincoln Club, and the County of San Diego’s Health Services Advisory Board.

Originally from Brooklyn, New York, Paul grew up in Sacramento, California. He received his MBA from the University of Southern California where he graduated with honors. He holds a bachelors of arts in government from California State University, Sacramento.  Paul helped create a course in the Business of Medicine at UC San Diego School of Medicine, which he continues to teach along with two physicians.
