  • What is the Medical Student Section?

    Alt Tag  

    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.
