TMA created the Medical Student Section (MSS) in the late 1970s to gain a student perspective among members and provide future physicians with a voice in TMA policy. This organized membership section helps focus attention on issues unique to Texas' students and provides a forum for students to communicate with each other.
The Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) is an organized membership section of TMA that helps address issues unique to Texas resident physicians and provides a forum for residents and fellows to communicate with each other and the membership at large. In addition, as an RFS member, you can help create TMA policy and help shape the environment in which you will practice medicine. Participation in the RFS is a complimentary benefit of your TMA membership.
The YPS provides a means for physicians in their first eight years of practice to participate in activities and programs relevant to the physician just entering practice. The section provides input into TMA policy through direct access and representation in the House of Delegates.
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. 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.
The LGBTQHS provides a means for TMA member medical students, residents and fellows, and physicians to address important issues of interest in LGBTQ Health. The section provides input into TMA policy through direct access and representation in the House of Delegates.
The WPS provides opportunities for female physicians to network with peers, discuss issues affecting their practice, and influence TMA policy through representation in the House of Delegates. The section is led by the Executive Council, all of whom were elected virtually and assumed their duties upon close of the section's virtual event in September 2020.
