Tips for Your Best TexMed Experience

TexMed takes place this week (May 5-6 in Houston). To help attendees make the most of this conference, TMA has compiled a few essential tips and resources. If you haven't registered, you can do so on site. TexMed is free to TMA members and offers more than 80 hours of free continuing medical education (CME) programming.

There's More Than One Reason to Attend. Some attend TexMed primarily for business meetings, others for CME and EXPO. Regardless of your interests, don't leave until you've experienced everything TexMed has to offer. Highlights include:  

  • Free lunches Friday and Saturday in the EXPO. Tickets included with registration.
  • Free 15-minute practice help consults Friday and Saturday.
  • Keynote speakers — William H. McRaven, chancellor of The University of Texas System; Kevin Pho, MD,; and Pete Blair, PhD, executive director of ALERRT.
  • EXPO — Visit the Disaster Preparedness Pavilion, and then explore the latest medical devices, technology, practice services, and pharmaceuticals.  

Road Closures and Parking. Expect road closures Saturday for the Cinco de Mayo parade. We recommend arriving at the Avenida Houston (Discovery Green) parking garage before 8:30 am and leaving after the Closing General Session at 2:30 pm to avoid traffic. Use the parking flyer for a map of garages and associated costs.  

What to Bring? Pack a light jacket or sweater, and wear comfortable shoes for walks between CME programs, business meetings, and the EXPO. Business cards are also a must. Attendees receive a free conference tote, and charging stations are available in the EXPO Physician Lounge, so bring your charger.

We're excited to see you at the brand new Houston Marriott Marquis and the George R. Brown Convention Center. For more information about how to get to TexMed and where to park, visit TexMed Travel.
