The Texas Medical Association House of Delegates installed Keller pediatrician Gary Floyd, MD, as its 157th president during TexMed 2022 in Houston in April - the first in-person meeting of TMA's annual conference and policymaking body since the beginning of the COVID-19 public health emergency. He is the fourth TMA president to serve during the ongoing pandemic and will lead America’s largest state medical society for one year.
TMA bestowed its highest honor, the Distinguished Service Award, upon Austin colon and rectal surgeon David C. Fleeger, MD, for his confident leadership during difficult times. More on a career of service.
If you think of one person who’s had a hand in the precedent-setting accomplishments of TMA's legal apparatus, that person should be TMA General Counsel Donald P. Wilcox – or “Rocky” as he’s known around the legal and legislative halls of Texas. Mr. Wilcox is retiring after nearly five decades of service to organized medicine.

TMA’s History of Medicine Committee presents an online exhibit featuring portraits and short biographical sketches of all TMA presidents beginning with the organization of the State Medical Association of Texas in 1853. Read the biographies in the notes section below each slide. And, check out the page of interesting facts about TMA presidents. This online exhibit is a work in progress; we will add more biographies during the year.
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.
Rock-solid support among TMA faithful isn't uncommon. Indeed, frustrated by changes in health care, many Texas doctors and their office staffs view the organization as a white-hatted cowboy battling valiantly on their behalf.
