Tarrant County Medical Society Alliance was founded in 1920, and nearly 100 years later it endures as a dedicated group of physicians and spouses. With a diverse membership of friends, colleagues, and volunteers, TCMSA members share a common bond: Supporting Medicine in Tarrant County. It strives to serve members with fun social events, support in times of crisis, leadership development opportunities, and quality of life programs like Book Club, Drama Queens, and Hometown Explorers.

Mission Statement: To enhance the lives and health of Texans through cooperative programming with the Tarrant County Medical Society. To provide opportunities for member growth and development. To assist in developing friendly relations and mutual understanding among physicians, their families and the general public.

Advocacy in Action

Hard Hats for Little Heads: The Tarrant Alliance has organized Hard Hats for Little Heads events throughout the year to give away bike helmets to children in need and educates parents on the importance of helmets during sporting activities.

Be Wise - Immunize: The Tarrant Alliance has immunized thousands of children at little or no cost to their parents over the years. Be Wise is a joint project with the Immunization Collaboration of Tarrant County, the TMA and the TMAA.

Warm Hugs: The Tarrant Alliance has collected hoodies for children in need for the Center for Transforming Lives.

JPS Shower of Love: The Tarrant Alliance has collected baby items to give to new mothers at John Peter Smith Hospital.

Allied Health Scholarships: The Tarrant Alliance and Foundation provides scholarships to students in health fields who will serve our local medical community.

Doctor's Tribute benefiting Project Access: We help support efforts of the Tarrant County Medical Society to fund Project Access, an initiative started in 2011 that coordinates specialty physicians and hospitals to give needed medical services to the uninsured and working poor in our community. Donors who contribute to Project Access Tarrant County by honoring their physician receive a yard or office sign, and the doctors who are honored receive a hand written note of thanks.

Annual Medicine Ball: The Tarrant County Medical Society Alliance and Foundation holds a glamorous Medicine Ball each year as the only major fund raising event for funding of its projects and scholarship programs. This elegant evening of dinner and dancing is the highlight of the year for Alliance members and supporting underwriters.

First Tuesdays at the Capitol: Every other year, when the legislative session is in place the Tarrant Alliance organizes a group of Alliance members, physicians, medical students and residents to attend First Tuesdays at the Capitol in Austin.

The Tarrant Alliance actively encourages TEXPAC Membership and educates its members on legislative issues impacting medicine. You can sign up for TEXPAC here.
