We will announce more information about the topic and guest speaker closer to the event.
Tennessee Healthcare Symposium
The Tennessee Healthcare Symposium is a must-attend event for physicians, medical office staff and other healthcare professionals who want to improve coding, billing and reimbursement process within your practice, as well as improve bottom line profitability. For the 2020 event, we featured 31 experts across 12 educational sessions and 8 unique payer sessions that highlighted upcoming changes to insurance plans. This year's event is scheduled for November 2 - 4, 2021 and will be held virtually.
House of Delegates
TMA's House of Delegates gives physicians from across the state an opportunity to gather as a professional group to present and debate policies that affect the practice of medicine and the delivery of patient care in both Tennessee and the United States. Our Annual Meeting and House of Delegates occurred on May 21-23, 2021. Visit the page below to review the final actions and see images from this event.

Physician Leadership Lab
The John Ingram Institute for Physician Leadership is TMA’s ongoing training initiative to uplift physicians as leaders on a healthcare team, in their profession and in the community. This multi-month Lab helps physicians develop the valuable skills essential to leaders in the emerging physician-led, team-based healthcare environment. Physician participants attend two live sessions in January and April, along with webinars and individual coaching sessions.
Day on the Hill 2021
TMA's annual Doctors' Day on the Hill was held on Wednesday, March 3, 2021. This event connects physicians directly with lawmakers so they can advocate for their patients and discuss major issues affecting the medical profession in Tennessee. Due to COVID-19 safety concerns, we hosted the event in a new virtual format.
Proper Prescribing Training
TMA helps doctors meet state medical boards’ requirements of two (2) CME hours of prescribing training. In our proprietary, accredited course, "Appropriate Prescribing in Tennessee," physicians will receive a comprehensive review of new definitions, state laws and other regulatory changes affecting pain management. Physicians renewing their license in 2022 are required to take a prescribing course by Dec. 31, 2021.
