When you apply for your TMB permit and if certain questions are answered in the affirmative the TMB may refer you to the Texas Physician’s Health Program (Texas PHP). Once the TMB has received your application and if you are referred to the Texas PHP, the licensing staff handling your application will notify you via email and/or letter. It is important that if you answer affirmative to any of the questions on the permit application, you must also communicate this with the Parkland director of GME.
