Physicians Caring for Patients

The Texas Medical Association, the nation’s largest and one of the oldest and most powerful state medical societies, speaks out for more than 49,000 physician and medical student members across the state in our commitment to improve the health of all Texans. In partnership with our 112 county medical societies, we have been helping Texas physicians set high professional and ethical standards since 1853.

TMA monitors state and national laws to ensure that physicians can practice their craft with a minimum amount of interference. We help doctors set up offices and file claims for payment. TMA is the physicians' partner in health education through programs like Be-Wise Immunize and Walk With a Doc (WWAD). TMA offers continuing medical education programs, has its own physicians' insurance, and publishes both a bi-monthly newsletter (Action) and a monthly health care magazine (Texas Medicine). Our website site keeps membership informed of the latest medical news and special programs offered by TMA.
