We know your focus is taking care of your patients, which leaves little time to fight the battles that are facing your profession. That's why TMA is relentlessly working for you and your patients. Whether it's representing medicine in Austin and Washington, D.C., meeting with third-party payers to get you paid, developing practice management tools and seminars for you and your office staff, or creating programs to improve public health, TMA has long been a physicians' best advocate.

In March, a Harris County jury awarded $6.4 million in damages to Houston cardiothoracic surgeon, Miguel Gomez, MD, whom TMA supported in his years-long battle with Memorial Hermann Health System over a defamation claim. Dr. Gomez claimed that after he began planning a move to Houston Methodist West Hospital, Memorial Hermann began a "whisper campaign" to discredit him.
Grassroots efforts have been the cornerstone of our success throughout the years. TMA's elected speakers, officers, trustees, and other leaders of the association represent extensive years of involvement in the democratic process. Ultimately, however, it is the combined work and support of our general membership that makes the association so effective. TMA's strength in numbers allows the association to even more effectively represent all physicians. Our goal is to take care of you so you can take care of your patients.
Whether you desire to be a leader, make a difference in your organization, or enhance your personal knowledge and skill set, TMA offers professional growth opportunities and leadership support services designed with you in mind.
The fields of engagement — the Texas Legislature, U.S. Congress, courts, state and federal bureaucracies — are many. The issues are all-encompassing. But TMA’s approach is clear in this second edition.
