TMB Needs Physicians to Review Cases

The Texas Medical Board (TMB) is looking for physicians to serve on its expert physician panels to review standard-of-care cases. TMB pays reviewers $100 per hour. TMB says it can add five experts in most specialties to its roster. Spine surgeons and pediatric subspecialties are especially needed.

TMB says it wants active, licensed, board-certified physicians "who truly represent the best of the medical profession," who have no history of license restriction or peer discipline, and who have an "acceptable" malpractice complaint history. Malpractice limits will be evaluated on an individual basis, a TMB spokesperson said. Experience in peer review is preferred.

Email TMB Medical Director Linda Gage-White, MD, PhD for an application if you are interested.
