TMA Letter: Improve GME Funding - 06/22/2016
Texas has been exceedingly successful in attracting new physicians to the state. In fact, over the past decade, 32,000 new physicians have been licensed. Despite this significant milestone, our state still has a significant amount of catching up to do, mostly as a result of the state’s robust population growth over the past two decades. Texas continues to rank close to the bottom in a state comparison of physicians per capita, despite the number of new physicians.
