IMG Mission: To Promote Diversity and Integration in Texas Medicine
Welcome to the IMG Section webpage! The IMG Section was created in 1997 to promote diversity and integration in Texas medicine and provide a direct means for IMGs to participate in activities of TMA.
All IMGs are invited to participate in the TMA IMG Section, which is devoted to the unique issues and concerns of all IMG physicians. A diverse group of physicians with a common vision, this section meets three times a year in conjunction with TMA conferences and the annual meeting of the House of Delegates.

During TexMed 2023, TMA's Annual Meeting, the award winner was Maya Varshney, MD .
Nominate a physician for the Outstanding Physician Award by Feb. 20.
