• The TMA Leadership College

    • Leadership Training for Young Physicians

      If you aren't a natural born leader don't worry; you're not alone. Top leaders of America's most successful health care organizations aren't either. Most have made the leadership journey by taking advantage of their most innate talents, seeking out and learning skills they need, and developing their leadership abilities.

      The TMA Leadership College (TMALC) was established in 2010 as part of TMA's effort to ensure strong and sustainable physician leadership with organized medicine. TMALC graduates serve as thought leaders who can close the divide among clinicians and health care policymakers, and as trusted leaders within their local communities.

      With more than 40 hours of classroom instruction, the TMA Leadership College was designed for active TMA members under the age of 40 or who are in the first eight years of practice.

      The Texas Medical Association is here to guide you along your personal leadership journey. Are you ready to take the next step? 

      Applications are currently closed. Please check back in May for details about the Class of 2015.

      The TMA Leadership College is supported by an educational grant from The Physicians Foundation. 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.
