What is TMAA?

The Texas Medical Association Alliance (TMAA) is a group of individuals passionate about protecting the future of medicine through community service and legislative advocacy. Founded in 1918 by physician spouses, the Alliance has grown to include physicians, residents, and medical students. TMAA provides a community of support, mentorship, and lasting friendship in the Family of Medicine.


Fellowship

At the heart of TMAA is the strong sense of community. Alliance members understand the challenges facing the family of medicine through each stage of a physician's career. From the struggles of medical school and residency to the stresses of a career as a full-time physician, Alliance members provide mentorship, valuable networking, and, most importantly, unwavering support.




Advocacy

TMAA serves as the grassroots advocacy arm of the Texas Medical Association. With 18 active chapters across the state, the Alliance works to build relationships with legislators and to ensure they are current on issues affecting patients in their district. Since launching First Tuesdays at the Capitol in 2003, the Alliance has empowered thousands of physicians, medical spouses, and medical students to advocate for the future of medicine. Now, TMAA is introducing First Tuesdays in the Districts, connecting Alliance members, physicians, and medical students with their local legislators.




Giving Back

For decades, Alliance members have worked to improve the health of Texans. TMAA brings TMA-sponsored programs like Hard Hats for Little Heads, Walk With a Doc, and Be Wise - Immunize to their communities, in addition to promoting TMAA's own initiatives. In spring of 2019, TMAA launched an Opioid Take Back Symposium, providing drug disposal kits and informational brochures to attendees and bringing speakers to share firsthand experience and expertise on addiction. TMAA is also piloting the Texas BookShare program, where physicians "prescribe" books to children to educate them on healthy lifestyles.
