You, TMB, and TMA - 05/12/2016
A strong and fair Texas Medical Board (TMB) protects your patients, upholds high ethical and professional standards for physicians, helps to preserve Texas’ critical 2003 health care tort reforms, and maintains the professional image of all Texas physicians. Unfortunately, TMB has frequently lacked the resources to do its job right. As a result, obtaining a license took far too long, and egregious cases of physician misconduct went unaddressed. Some physicians complained they were the victims of unfair prosecution for minor violations or that the TMB disciplinary hearings were neither fair nor impartial.
