Texas physicians must complete 48 credits of continuing medical education every 24 months to maintain a Texas medical license. The credits may be earned in formal and informal CME activities of which two credits in formal CME must be designated for ethics and/or professional responsibility content.
All physicians licensed by the TMB to practice in Texas are required to register regularly with the board.
Let TMA guide you through the process of getting your medical license and setting up your practice in Texas.
This form represents only one format which may be useful for physicians to record their CME hours.
Anyone who completes TMA-sponsored CME now has the ability to view and print personal CME transcripts.
The Texas Medical Board (TMB) receives about 6,000 complaints a year. Of these, about 2,800 are opened for investigation, and those investigations result in 350-400 disciplinary actions ranging from public reprimands, administrative penalties, education, restrictions, to licensure suspension or revocation. If you find yourself the subject of a TMB investigation, you need to understand how your responses and actions throughout the process will affect you now and in the future.
As part of your TMA membership, hundreds of CME and ethics hours are now available at no cost to you, compliments of TMA Insurance Trust.
