Weimar Physician Reelected to TMA Leadership Position

September 6, 2019

Jorge A. Duchicela, MD, a Weimar family physician in practice for 31 years, was reelected to serve on the Texas Medical Association’s (TMA’s) Council on Health Care Quality. He will begin his new term during the TMA Fall Conference next week.

The Council on Health Care Quality establishes policy on topics surrounding quality improvement, such as performance-based measurements and value-based payment programs, and educates physicians about federal and state incentives to improve patient care. It also advocates for fair and sound quality improvement initiatives.

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.

Dr. Duchicela is a member of the Colorado-Fayette County Medical Society.

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.
