TMA created the Medical Student Section (MSS) in the late 1970s to gain a student perspective among members and provide future physicians with a voice in TMA policy. It helps focus attention on issues unique to Texas' students and provides a forum for students to communicate with each other.
Now over 4,800 members strong, the TMA-MSS section helps shape the future of medicine as members participate in the TMA and American Medical Association policy-making process and serve in slotted seats on boards, councils, and committees. Students also have a voting representative on the TMA Board of Trustees. TMA student members also are actively involved in their local county medical societies.
Joins us for the next TMA Medical Student Section business meeting to be held at the Hyatt Regency Austin on Saturday, Jan. 28 during TMA's Winter Conference.
Medical student representatives and alternate representatives are appointed to serve one-year terms on association boards, councils, and committees. Applications are open for the 2016-2017 term. To apply, submit an application to your Section Coordinator by April 15.
The TMA-MSS Leadership Honor Society recognizes fourth year medical students that have actively participated in Texas organized medicine. Submit an application to your Section Coordinator by April 15 for recognition.
