Texas sees flood of physician applications

Filed under:

I'm amazed people are choosing to enter the medical field these days. It's a true calling to want to become a doctor, but being a shrewd businessperson better be on that list of professional traits as well. One of the bigger concerns: malpractice insurance.

So, it comes as no surprise that Texas is seeing a huge increase in the number of doctors wanting to set up shop in the state due to recently relaxed laws in that state regarding the exposure physicians have to malpractice lawsuits.

Many applicants to the Texas state medical board are having to wait months to see patients due to the long wait times. While they wait, at least they can study up on tort reform.
