Count on the Dallas Medical Society and the Texas Medical Association to advocate for physicians as legislation and administrative actions that impact physicians are deliberated. There is strength in numbers when it comes to advocacy, and when you are a member of organized medicine in Texas, you will never go it alone. 

Get involved. The show of a collective effort of DCMS physicians is extremely important. Members provide a powerful common voice protecting patients, physicians, and their relationship, while serving as thought leaders and conveners to model positive change. DCMS physicians are involved in influencing legislation as it pertains to the quality of care delivered to patients. Click to learn more about the DCMS Legislative Affairs and Advocacy Committee.

Physicians need to be involved in all phases of the legislative process. If you would like to join your colleagues in Austin or get involved at any level, contact DCMS.

Sign up to attend First Tuesdays with TMA and DCMS

Legislators need to hear from you – their physician, medical student, and alliance constituents – to understand how proposed legislation can potentially impact the practice of medicine in Texas. Join fellow physicians in Austin to advocate for issues important to medicine. Registration is now open. Advance registration is required to participate in DCMS coordinated visits. Members who do not pre-register at least a week in advance may participate in the TMA Ambassadors Program.
