Academic Physicians

  • How Does TMA Serve Physicians in Academic Medicine?

    TMA understands that physicians who choose a practice in academic medicine have different concerns and challenges from physicians in other types of practice. TMA has made a commitment to support you in your role in preparing the next generation of physicians.
  • TMA Advocacy

    Alt Tag  

    Work with TMA’s lobby team to ensure Texas medical schools, residency programs, and academic health centers have resources for high-quality teaching, patient care, and research. Because state laws bar you from lobbying while representing your institutions, TMA lobbies on your behalf, with your input.
