Sue S. Bornstein, MD, a Dallas internist, was reelected to serve on the Texas Medical Association (TMA) Board of Trustees, the association’s governing body. Physician leaders in TMA’s House of Delegates policymaking body reelected Dr. Bornstein today at TexMed, the association’s annual conference, in Dallas.
“As a primary care physician, I understand the difficulties faced by physicians on the front line who work hard to provide their patients with timely, patient-centered, accessible, affordable, and appropriate care,” Dr. Bornstein said. “I will devote my energy and influence to making sure that our public health system remains viable with the ability to effectively address important public health issues.”
Dr. Bornstein is executive director of the Texas Medical Home Initiative (TMHI), a nonprofit physician-led organization dedicated to advancing accessible, continuous, and coordinated person-centered care for all Texans. She is also co-executive director of the Texas Primary Care Consortium, a statewide collaboration to improve primary care in Texas, led by TMHI and the Texas Health Institute.
She has worked within TMA as well to advance primary care. Dr. Bornstein was the initial chair of the TMA Committee on Primary Care and the Medical Home. She served on the TMA Committee on Physician Distribution and Health Care Access and the Physician Services Organization (PSO) Committee, which ultimately led to the creation of the TMA PracticeEdge PSO.
She continues work on TMA’s Select Committee on Medicaid, CHIP, and the Uninsured. In her first term as a TMA trustee, Dr. Bornstein has chaired the board’s Value-Based Payment Workgroup and Committee on Educational Scholarships and Loans.
She is a member of the Dallas County Medical Society (DCMS) and served on its board of directors from 2005 to 2007, including a term as secretary/treasurer. She also helped launch the DCMS Women in Medicine committee. In January 2019, DCMS honored Dr. Bornstein’s legacy of leadership with the Charles Max Cole, MD, Leadership Award.
Dr. Bornstein is board certified in internal medicine. After graduating from Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center-Lubbock (TTUHSC) in 1992, she completed her residency in internal medicine at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. Dr. Bornstein is a distinguished alumna of TTUHSC and the University of North Texas Center for Studies in Aging.
While in private practice from 1995 to 2010 at Baylor University Medical Center, Dr. Bornstein served in numerous leadership capacities in the health system, including president of the medical staff.
TMA is the largest state medical society in the nation, representing nearly 53,000 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.
