Getting Started in Texas

Welcome to Texas!

Dr. BonnenAs the saying goes, everything is bigger and better in Texas. And that holds true for the Texas Medical Association. More than 50,000 physicians and medical students have chosen to be members of TMA. That many of your colleagues can't be wrong!

Grassroots efforts have always been at the cornerstone of our success, including the 2003 landmark package of liability reforms that sets the gold standard across the nation. But we don't stop there. Together with local component county medical societies, we strive to be your one-stop resource for everything you need to care for your patients. Find your county medical society, or visit the TMA Alliance page to see just some of the local resources and support available to physician members.

We hope you will soon discover what your fellow Texas physicians already know: that TMA truly is "America's Best Medical Society." Join us today and gain a partner with over 150 years of experience and a proven record of success working for you!
