Texas Physician Health Program
Medical professionals suffering from substance use disorders, mental disorders, or certain other medical issues could possibly face a number of serious consequences, such as losing their license and the ability to work in the medical field. However, the Texas Medical Board has partnered with the Texas Physician Health Program to offer eligible medical professionals the opportunity to participate in a rehabilitation program without suffering punitive measures from the Texas Medical Board.

Whether you need assistance to file and process the appropriate documents or with the preparation of your case for the medical board, we can bring our knowledge and experience to your aid. Contact us at 512-495-9995.
There are a number of medical professionals that are able to utilize the Texas Physician Health Program, including:
- Physician Assistants
- Surgical Assistants
- Texas Medical Board licensure applicants
Others, who are ineligible to participate in the Texas Physician Health Program, are:
- Medical professionals who have violated the standard of care
- Medical professionals who have been convicted of a crime or felony
- Medical professionals who have been found to be in a boundary violation with a patient or their family
Having the Texas Medical Board refer you for treatment through the Texas Physician Health Program can potentially save your license to practice medicine and, therefore, your livelihood.
