LEGISLATIVE ADVOCACY

 

BCMS hosts Texas Medical Board

 

On July 27, BCMS hosted Mari Robinson, J.D., executive director for the Texas Medical Board (TMB).  Ms. Robinson led a CME presentation on several topics pertaining to the practice of medicine in our state, including physician professional responsibilities.  The presentation offered attendees 1 hour of medical ethics CME.  Approximately 75 physicians and practice administrators attended.  Among the topics discussed during the hour-long presentation were:  legislation passed in the 84th legislative session; regulation issues; the TMB enforcement process and common types of violations.
