In February 2007, TMA asked Fifty Year Club members to write essays about their personal insights into the medical profession.
Our Fifty Year Club members' collective wisdom and knowledge are valuable assets to the association. These essays manifest physicians' trusted leadership role within their communities and the health care team.
If you are a Fifty Year Club member and wish to submit your own essay, please e-mail Fifty Year Club or call Gail Schatte at (800) 880-1300, ext. 1600.
The links below will direct you to the essays as they are printed in Texas Medicine magazine on a recurring basis. We hope you enjoy!
