The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is seeking physician nominees certified in psychiatry to serve on the department's Medical Advisory Board (MAB). Physicians appointed to the MAB work with DSHS and the Department of Public Safety on determining whether driver's license applicants or current license holders are medically capable of safely operating a motor vehicle. Physician members also review concealed handgun license applications.
MAB meetings occur twice a month in Austin. DSHS requires members to attend approximately six meetings a year, and the department provides $100 reimbursement to board members per meeting attended.
If you'd like to nominate a psychiatrist to serve on the MAB, email the potential nominee's contact information to TMA's Director of Public Health Margaret Mendez by April 18. For more information on the MAB, visit the DSHS website.
