Twenty-five physicians from across Texas have been chosen as the Class of 2014 of the TMA Leadership College (TMALC). The class, chosen from a record 58 applicants, is the largest one yet. The first class had 28 applicants.
TMA established the leadership college in 2010 as part of its effort to ensure strong and sustainable physician leadership within organized medicine. It is designed for active TMA members younger than 40 or who are in their first year of practice. TMALC graduates are thought leaders who can close the divide among clinicians and health care policymakers and are trusted leaders within their local communities. TMALC includes more than 40 hours of classroom instruction. Classes begin in October.
The TMALC Class of 2013 graduated at TexMed 2013 in May.
An educational grant from The Physicians Foundation supports TMALC. The Physicians Foundation is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) national organization that seeks to advance the work of practicing physicians and to improve the quality of health care for all Americans. Louis J. Goodman, PhD, executive vice president and chief executive officer of TMA, is president of the foundation.
