Health plans confusing patients, hospitals playing doctor, and
brand new physicians forced to leave Texas. Those are the biggest
issues Texas Medical Association is handling as the 2009 Texas
Legislature moves into its final six weeks.
This month's video includes:
- A progress report on our "Patients' Right to Know" campaign
for health insurance reform;
- Our work to protect your clinical autonomy by stopping
hospitals' push to be able to hire physicians directly; and
- Interviews with a panel of medical students on their advocacy
to expand graduate medical education slots in Texas and
reengineer the state's student loan repayment program.

effective lobbyist for your patients by coming to the final
Tuesdays at the Capitol
on May 5.
