275.001 Physician Relief Program


Physician Relief Program: A registry, administered by the state rural health authority, of physicians willing to provide temporary relief to rural physicians who are without call coverage and time off or the ability to pay for locum tenens assistance, maintained by a central clearing house, would assist physicians in finding a cost-effective solution to the "burn out" problem and provide options for graduating physicians in their search for suitable practice environments. The Texas Medical Association supports a physician relief registry and identifying sources of funding (MSS, p 156, A-93; amended CME Rep. 6-A-03; amended CM-PDHCA Rep. 1-A-13).
