Something good is now even better. TMA's practice management, cancer, and physician health courses are now easier than ever for you to find online. The TMA Education Center offers convenient, one-stop access to the continuing medical education (CME) Texas physicians need. Log in using your TMA website user name and password to automatically receive member pricing.
"We are especially excited about the center's mobile-friendly capability," said Carl O. Trusler, MD, chair of the TMA Council on Practice Management Services. "You can start an online course on your office computer and finish it at home on your iPad or smart phone. You can take up where you left off.
"The center is easy to use because it is sortable," Dr. Trusler said. "For example, you can search for one-hour ethics courses."
Users also can browse by topic; number of CME credits; date or location; delivery type (such as recorded webinar, publication by mail, e-book, or live seminar); and availability of a liability insurance discount.
Once you've made your course choice, you can click to buy, register for, download, or order it – whatever is needed for the type of course you selected. For courses that have a testing requirement, including home studies, you will take the test online. Once you achieve a score of 70 percent or better, the TMA Education Center will log your CME credits instantly. You can download TMA CME transcripts monthly.
