TMA Leadership College

Ready to take your leadership journey to the next level?

Become a TMALC scholar!

Applications are due June 1, 2017.


Are you called to lead, but worry you aren’t a natural-born leader? Don’t worry. You’re not alone: Top leaders of America’s most successful health care organizations will tell you leadership is bred, not born. Most leaders have developed their abilities by taking advantage of their top innate talents, and seeking out and learning the skills they need. The Texas Medical Association is here to guide you on your journey to great leadership.

TMA established the TMA Leadership College (TMALC) in 2010 to help ensure strong and sustainable physician leadership within organized medicine. TMALC graduates serve as thought leaders who can close the divide among clinicians and health care policymakers, and as trusted leaders within their local communities.

With more than 40 hours of classroom instruction, the TMA Leadership College was designed for active TMA members under the age of 40 or who are in the first eight years of practice.
