Is Your Student Chapter Serving the Community? Get Recognized


Your busy medical student chapter hasn’t been sitting around doing nothing since the Texas Medical Association’s Fall Conference in September, has it?


I’m sure at some point over the past seven months, your chapter organized a project that benefitted the community, such as a Hard Hats for Little Heads event or a Hurricane Harvey cleanup day.

If you want to be recognized for that work, submit an application for the Chapter Service Project of the Year award by April 15. 

To be eligible, projects must have taken place between Sept. 1, 2017 and April 15 of this year, and must have been organized and executed primarily by your school’s TMA chapter.

The winning chapter will be announced during the TMA Medical Student Section Business Meeting at TexMed 2018.

While we’re on the subject of honoring students’ good works during TexMed, the student section Leadership Honor Society will recognize fourth-year medical students who have actively participated in Texas organized medicine. Those students will receive honor cords they can wear at their medical school graduations.

You can find more information in the Leadership Honor Society application, which is due to your Section Coordinator by April 15.
