Our Past …
TMA was first organized in 1853 when 35 physicians from 18 counties responded to a published invitation sent by 10 Austin doctors. The group's main goal was to advance the status and standards of medical practice in Texas. TMA has grown dramatically over the years. By 1954, 98 percent of all Texas physicians were members, and in 1984 TMA became the third largest medical association in the United States.
Our Present ...
By being the physicans' tireless advocate, we allow physicians to concentrate on their patients.
TMA monitors state and national laws to ensure that physicians can practice their craft with a minimum amount of interference. We help doctors set up offices and file claims for payment. TMA is the physicians' partner in health education by running programs like Project WATCH for children and the Physicians Oncology Education Program (POEP). TMA offers continuing medical education programs, has its own physicians' insurance, and publishes both a monthly newsletter (Action) and a monthly health care magazine (Texas Medicine). The TMA Library offers more than 60,000 books and journals for use by its members. Our Web site keeps our membership informed of the latest medical news and special programs offered by TMA.
All of this and more are the key to TMA's success as the country's largest state medical society, with more than 40,000 physician and medical student members.
