Apply Now for the Physician Health and Wellness Program COVID-19 Grant

Oct. 30 is the third and final deadline for county medical societies to apply for a grant to support health and wellness activities your members need during this prolonged and difficult COVID-19 pandemic.

To help the greatest number of Texas physicians in need of health and wellness resources and to strengthen the capacity of physician healers, the Texas Medical Association Foundation (TMAF) has established the TMAF Caring for Physician Healers: Mental Health and Wellness Resources During COVID-19 Fund. TMA county medical societies are eligible to apply. 

Applications must be submitted as a Word document via email.

Approved grant funding requests will be available for distribution approximately one month after each deadline as follows: The first half (50%) will be paid upon full execution of the grant contract, and the second half (50%) will be paid in spring 2021 upon the approved applicant’s submission of the interim progress report. Approved applicants may request an alternate funds distribution schedule. 

In addition, the Travis County Medical Society led a group of nationwide county medical societies in creating the LifeBridge Physician Wellness Program Toolkit, a free step-by-step guide to develop a physician wellness program your medical society can offer to members who might be experiencing burnout, stress, or suicidal thoughts. The program was funded by a generous grant form The Physician Foundation, which TMA is a founding member. Visit the Travis County Medical Society's website to learn more about its physician wellness program.
