A presidential election where the candidates focus on health care and the chance to build stronger relationships with young physicians and medical schools top the list of opportunities Texas county medical society leaders see for 2008. The biggest challenges? Membership (of course) and helping physicians maintain the economic viability of their practices. TMA and American Medical Association leaders joined the presidents, presidents-elect, and senior staff from 16 counties at our annual County Society Leadership Forum. In an exchange of best practices, Nueces County Medical Society discussed its call-in television show, Travis County Medical Society shared ways to engage female physicians, and Harris County Medical Society offered details of a physician survey that gave all the Houston-area health plans failing grades for patient care and paying physicians.
