Join other early career physicians at our annual networking event on Friday, September 20, at 5:30 pm in conjunction with the President’s Reception at the TPS Annual Meeting. There will be a “reserved” sign on one of the tables dedicated for any physician in practice 5 years or less. Immediately following the reception, join the section members for a family friendly dinner, "dutch-treat" at the Legacy Plano West Food Hall. We look forward to sharing interests and ideas to help the society support upcoming physicians early in their career.

About the Early Career Physician Section

Physicians 40 years-old and younger, or who have been in practice 5 years or less can participate. TPS’ goal is to help the Early Career Physician's Section (ECPS) establish peer networks in new cities, practices and identify specific interests relevant to the physician just entering practice.

What can You do? As a member of the TPS ECPS, while we are in your area - this year we are in Houston, we ask for your help with the TPS Annual Meeting, please see below:

  • Support TPS and register for the Annual Meeting! You are eligible to submit CME proposals for future meetings. There is no CME or Section meeting this year, but check back with us next year!
  • Give your input to create an activity guide for Early Career Physicians and
    their families by referring activities that are family-friendly (example:
    museums, waterparks, sites to see, etc. in the city hosting the meeting.)
    Please refer any child-care options.
  • Host a resident in your home and help trainees attend the conference.
    Residents often cannot attend the meeting because of price concerns.
    Hosting a resident is a great way to support TPS, build and retain our
    membership, and help support networking
