Victoria Physician Retains TMA Leadership Role

A Victoria physician has accepted a leadership position within the Texas Medical Association (TMA). TMA physicians and medical students who are appointed or elected to one of TMA’s 30 boards, councils, and committees are responsible for studying and recommending action on important issues affecting Texas patients and health care policy.

Philip T. Suarez, MD, an obstetrician-gynecologist in practice for 20 years, was reappointed to TMA’s Committee on Professional Liability. The committee follows trends, conducts educational campaigns, and works with TMA members to preserve medical liability reform. Dr. Suarez is a member of the Victoria-Goliad-Jackson County Medical Society.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing nearly 46,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 120 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
