All About TMA

    Physicians Step Up in VA CrisisAs Congress and the embattled U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs work to resolve overwhelming backlogs in medical care for the nation's veterans, TMA and physicians across the state are enlisting to help alleviate the documented access-to-care problems. TMA was one of the first state medical societies to establish a registry of private-sector doctors willing to see veteran patients.
  • About TMA
    2013 TMA Annual Report
    America's biggest and best medical association emerged from three intense special sessions of the Texas Legislature in 2013 with long-sought, even precedent-setting victories that focus on patient safety and medical practice viability. TMA successfully advocated passage of bills that reduce the red tape binding your practice, give your patients new protections, bolster the state's GME program, promote transparent insurance markets, and prevent unqualified health professionals from delivering care outside their expertise.
    Deadlines for Doctors Keeps You CurrentYou can keep up with federal and state requirements that affect your practice by regularly checking TMA's Deadlines for Doctors.
    Healthy Vision 2020We desperately need a clear view of the future of health care in Texas. Our growing population, beset by expensive acute and chronic diseases, doesn’t have enough physicians to care for them now. Many physicians face the deluge of new laws, rules, and regulations that keeps coming between them and their patients. With Healthy Vision 2020, we bring into focus a clear and distinct view of the rest of this decade in Texas health care.
    CME Anytime, Anywhere!The Texas Medical Board required physicians to have 48 CME credits every two years including 2 credits of ethics. Come to our Education Center to find a wide array of programs to fulfill your requirements for you and your staff.
    Schools Helps Students Match to Residency ProgramsMedical school deans in Texas and across the country are concerned about a growing number of students who have difficulty matching to a residency training program. They say those numbers could add up to missed opportunities in the form of physicians and medical education dollars that do not immediately end up in a workforce hurting for doctors of every discipline. They also point to an increasingly competitive match climate as part of the problem, as they search for ways to better counsel students to maximize their opportunities early and often throughout their medical education.
    TMA Survey ResultsThe Texas Medical Association conducts surveys of Texas physicians to research regulatory, socioeconomic, and political issues to support federal and state legislative efforts. Check out the latest findings.
