The TMA Resident and Fellow Section (RFS) serves as a voice and advocate on issues unique to Texas residents. RFS members help create TMA policy and resolutions that shape the future of medicine. Join TMA today to experience first-hand how residents – like yourself – are given the power and resources to make a difference in your profession.
Success as a physician involves more than the practice of quality medicine. TMA’s free, one-hour seminars help illuminate complexities in the business side of medicine and may meet ACGME requirements. Learn how to negotiate employment and insurance contracts, manage a hospital or practice, and protect health care data from cyber threats.
Use TMA's tools and resources to help eliminate the stress of residency and successfully enter your first practice.

Four Texas medical schools, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations received about $250,000 each to develop new first-year graduate medical education (GME) programs in the state.
Increasingly for new physicians, debt hangs over everything in their lives ― their personal decisions about kids and marriage, their choice of specialty, their ability to set up a practice. The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) says that 76 percent of all medical school graduates have education debt and that the average debt is $190,000 per person.
