Don't Miss NAM's Inaugural Spring Social

Member Event Featuring Commissioner Lisa Piercey, MD - Tuesday, May 21

The Nashville Academy of Medicine and the Williamson County Medical Society will host a combined meeting on Tuesday, May 21, to welcome the Tennessee Department of Health’s new Commissioner Lisa Piercey, MD.
This event is for NAM and WCMS members.

2019 Day on the Hill Was a Success

On March 26, 60 NAM member physicians gathered to bring the voice of medicine to Tennessee legislators during the Tennessee Medical Association’s Day on the Hill. TMA’s top legislative priority was improving a 2018 law that restricted opioid prescriptions. This opioid legislation passed both chambers of the legislature with overwhelming support, and Gov. Lee signed it into law on April 9.
Doctors also asked lawmakers to consider increasing funding for graduate medical education, protect patient safety and quality of care with important scope of practice regulations for midlevel healthcare providers, and ensure health plan network adequacy for hospital-based services.

Reminder: TN Professional Privilege Tax Is Due June 1

Tennessee law requires every physician with an active license from the Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners (BME) or Board of Osteopathic Examination (BOE) to pay a professional privilege tax by June 1 of each year to the State of Tennessee Department of Revenue. Physicians may not receive a reminder from the licensing board, and only those who have previously signed up for email reminders will receive them from the Department of Revenue.

ROUTE + ONE: Free Prescribing CME

TMA members are invited to test an exciting, innovative mobile CME opportunity aimed at standardizing opioid education across disciplines: ROUTE + ONE. This free CME program takes less than five minutes a day to complete and is delivered on your computer or mobile device. Learn more here.
