TMA carries the collective voice of physicians from across the state
on Capitol Hill, working directly with lawmakers to influence public
policies affecting the practice of medicine. We protect the medical
profession by relentlessly pursuing laws that improve physicians’
effectiveness, and fighting regulatory changes that jeopardize the
physician-patient relationship or add administrative burden without
improving the delivery of care. We advocate on behalf of patients at the
state and federal levels to improve the quality, safety, accessibility
and affordability of medical care in Tennessee. We make sure physicians
have a say in critical public health issues.
We represent physicians. We protect patients. We influence policy.
