TMALC Scholar Experiences

Recent Grads: TMALC Class of 2019 


"The TMALC not only gave me opportunities to learn more about myself in an honest, compassionate and constructive way, but it also plugged me into a network of other like-minded physicians from different regions, specialties, and practice settings. We learned so much together, and I don't know if we would have ever had the opportunity if it weren't for the TMALC." 

James Saucedo, MD | Orthopedic Surgery in San Antonio

 "TMALC was a rewarding experience from the outset. I gained a lot of knowledge on how I approach leadership and lots of feedback on how to better harness my strengths. This program provided me with networking, support, and accountability in setting goals and achieving them. It also gave me a renewed confidence in my abilities, not only as a physician, but as a trusted leader. This experience was invaluable and came at the perfect time in my career. I would highly recommend leadership college to any physician who wants to better themselves both personally and professionally. I hope to use what I have learned in order to better serve my patients and continue to actively participate at the county level and the TMA."

Tina Philip, DO | Family Medicine in Austin

"I really enjoyed the cohesiveness that our class developed; we checked on each other, listened to each other and held each other accountable. With the struggles of day to day medical practice, this was a welcome comfort and resource for all of us."
