TWO BY TWO: TMA PRESIDENTS VISIT HOUSTON MEDICAL SCHOOLS
TMA President Sue Bailey, MD, and President-Elect Bruce Malone, MD, spent a full day at the state’s two medical schools in Houston. Representatives of The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) and Baylor College of Medicine were both very concerned about state cuts in undergraduate and graduate medical education funding. UTHealth Interim President Giuseppe Colasurdo, MD, said that institution may have to cut 60 residency positions. New Baylor President Paul Klotman, MD, asked for TMA’s help in setting up an accountable care organization. Our presidents also took questions from students of both schools at a noontime luncheon.
