TCMS/AISD Student Physicals

For over 20 years, TCMS has partnered with AISD to provide underinsured student athletes with the physicals they need to play sports, march in the band, and cheer in school.

Physicians, and physician assistants are needed for each of the two nights in April.

This year, we have partnered with CommUnityCare Health Centers who will be hosting the events at their north and south clinic locations in order to provide more exam rooms.

Spanish Meducation® Spring Classes

Spanish Meducation® is the practical medical Spanish program offered through the Travis County Medical Society. The eight-week program (meeting once a week) is designed for all health care professionals, including physicians, pharmacists, nurses, therapists, social workers, technicians, emergency personnel and their support staff.

The classes develop beginning, intermediate and advanced conversational skills in general Spanish with a concentration on health care situations while grammar takes a back seat. All handouts are included in the tuition cost; no textbook is required.

Join a group of Spanish students in June for the annual immersion trip.
