TPS offers Sections for each stage of a pediatrician’s career. Sections are open to all dues paying TPS members at no extra fees.
TPS Medical Student Section assists medical students who have an interest in pediatrics. Through the General Pediatric Preceptorship Program medical students receive direct experience for four weeks in a physician practice. Students are introduced to common pediatric problems, office management, and the doctor-patient relationship. Through the pediatric preceptorship program, membership is free. This section meets annually in connection with the TPS Annual Meeting.
All residents and fellows who are currently enrolled in a Texas Resident/Fellow program are eligible for TPS membership. Resident members are encouraged to participate in any of our 18 committees and attend our Annual Meeting in the fall. Attending meetings allows residents and fellows to network and enhance knowledge and interest in the profession.
Only available to TPS residents and fellows is our Resident & Fellow Section Electronic Poster Exhibit Contest. Residents and fellows can take the opportunity to win cash and recognition in the Electronic Poster Exhibit contest by submitting a PowerPoint Presentation for any or all three categories established by TPS Medical Education Committee.
Physicians under the age of 40, or who have been in practice 5 years or less can participate. TPS’ goal is to help the Young Physicians Section (YPS) establish peer networks in new cities, practices and identify specific interests relevant to the physician just entering practice.
Young Physicians can join TPS committees as representatives of YPS to voice the concerns, coordinate programs and activities that further enhance the practice of medicine. TPS offers leadership opportunities for all stages of a pediatrician’s career.
TPS formed the Office Managers Section to be a voice and resource for pediatric office managers in Texas. TPS works to improve the effectiveness of pediatric practices by providing office managers with information, education, and a professional network. Pediatric office managers, administrators and staff whose employer is a member of the TPS are invited to join. Membership benefits include:
- Assistance with billing and coding questions
- Monthly practice management newsletter
- Access to online discussion forums
- Discounts on Conferences and Seminars
