200.058

Projected Need for More Medical Schools in Texas: The Texas Medical Association recognizes that medical schools require extraordinary resources to meet national accreditation standards and to maintain educational excellence. With the increasing number of medical schools under development in Texas, it is in the best interest of the state for the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board to commission a comprehensive study to be done on the projected need for additional medical schools. TMA supports the board’s use of the study in evaluating future proposals for the establishment of new medical schools in the state (CME Rep. 4-A-19).
