MALONE VISITS WITH UTHSCSA LEADERS, STUDENTS, FACULTY
Dr. Malone led a very productive TMA and Bexar County Medical Society (BCMS) visit with the leadership of The University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. The team met with President William Henrich, MD, and Dean Francisco Gonzalez-Scarano, MD. The primary concern was medical education funding at all levels in Texas and the severity of recent cuts for both undergraduate and graduate medical education. The group included former TMA President Bill Hinchey, MD; TMA Board of Trustees member David Henkes, MD; BCMS President Robert Trevino Jr., MD; and BCMS CEO John Wisnewski. Dr. Malone also enjoyed a lively question-and-answer lunch with students and faculty. Topics included scope of practice, liability reform, public health, and the Texas Medical Board.
