DR. SPEER REACHES OUT TO HOUSTON MEDICAL SCHOOL
TMA President Michael Speer, MD, and Harris County Medical Society (HCMS) President Russ Kridel, MD, met with Giuseppe Colasurdo, MD, the president of The University of Texas (UT) Health Science Center at Houston. Dr. Colasurdo spoke of the critical need for more funds for GME, saying he had 13,000 applicants for 200 GME spots this year and Texas is not keeping pace with physician needs, especially in psychiatry and primary care. Drs. Speer and Kridel discussed the advantages that TMA and HCMS membership could bring to the UT-Houston faculty, serving the sixth largest medical school in the country.
