POST TORT REFORM, TEXAS STILL ATTRACTING RECORD NUMBERS OF NEW PHYSICIANS


The Texas Medical Board (TMB) licensed a record 3,994 new physicians for the fiscal year that ended last month. The number of new physicians applying for a Texas license also reached an all-time high of 5,149. Texas has averaged licensing 3,254 new physicians each year since the passage of our medical liability reforms 11 years ago. “The state medical board is now licensing twice as many doctors per year than in the medical crisis years before lawsuit reforms were enacted,” said Howard Marcus, MD, chair of Texas Alliance For Patient Access.
