New to Texas Resource Page


 Welcome to Texas!

As the saying goes, everything is bigger and better in Texas. And that holds true for the Texas Medical Association. Nearly 45,000 physicians and medical students have chosen to be members of TMA. That many of your colleagues can't be wrong!

Grassroots efforts have always been at the cornerstone of our success, including the 2003 landmark package of liability reforms  that sets the gold standard across the nation. But we don't stop there. We strive to be your  one-stop resource for everything you need  to care for your patients.  That is the reason we developed this Web  page dedicated to guiding you through the process of getting your medical license and setting up your practice. 

We hope you find the information helpful and that you will  discover what your fellow Texas physicians already know , that TMA truly is "America's Best Medical Society."
