TMA HOSTS MEDICAL EDUCATION SUMMIT TODAY
Dr. Malone is bringing together a host of legislative staffers and state agency leaders to hear what we can do about Texas’ growing physician shortage. The lineup of expert speakers includes Jordan Cohen, MD, president emeritus of the Association of American Medical Colleges; Texas Higher Education Commissioner Raymund Paredes, PhD; and the top leaders of all the Texas medical school systems. The purpose of the Where Are All the Doctors Going summit is to educate these key decisionmakers in advance of our 2013 legislative push to strengthen undergraduate and graduate medical education funding. The physician workforce shortage is a key component of our Health Vision 2020 document.
