320.007 Medical School Funding Town Gown. The Texas Medical Association supports the use of state appropriations to medical schools and graduate medical education (GME) programs for their education, work force, and research missions. However, TMA believes that medical schools should refrain from income-generating activities and services that would result in the generation of funds in excess of those needed to support their education, patient care and research missions, and that Texas medical schools should refrain from using their state agency/nonprofit status tax exemptions in advertising and promoting their medical services. TMA strongly supports requiring Medicaid managed care organizations to include any GME training programs located in their geographic coverage areas among their network(s) of providers serving Medicaid enrollees (Board of Trustees, p 18, I-96; amended CSE Rep. 1-A-08; amended CSE Rep. 1-A-18).
