James B. Boone III, MD, an El Paso anesthesiologist in practice for 15 years, began a final term of service on the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Council on Medical Education during the recent TMA Fall Conference held just outside Austin.

TMA member physicians and medical students are appointed or elected to one of TMA’s 25 boards, councils, and committees. They are responsible for studying health care-related issues and making recommendations on important health care policy affecting Texas patients and their physicians. 

The Council on Medical Education coordinates TMA’s medical education activities, studies Texas’ physician workforce trends, accredits continuing medical education programs, and monitors physician licensure and credentialing.

Dr. Boone is a member of the El Paso County Medical Society.

TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing more than 51,000 physician and medical student members. It is located in Austin and has 110 component county medical societies around the state. TMA’s key objective since 1853 is to improve the health of all Texans.
