175.014 Allowing Border Areas to Qualify for Expedited Medical Licensure


Allowing Border Areas to qualify for Expedited Medical Licensure: The Texas Medical Association supports the addition of border areas of the state, as defined by the Texas Department of State Health Services, to the list of geographic areas defined in state law as being eligible for expedited medical licensure. This is recommended in recognition of the chronic shortage of physicians in many border areas and longstanding difficulties in recruiting and paying physicians in these areas of the state (CM-PDHCA Rep. 3 A-07; amended CM-PDHCA Rep. 3-A-17).
