HB99 by Guillen (Relating to tracking career information for graduates of Texas medical schools and persons completing medical residency programs in Texas.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
The bill would require the Higher Education Coordinating Board to establish no later than January 1, 2016, a system to acquire and maintain data regarding the initial residency program choices made by graduates of medical schools in Texas and the initial practice choices made by persons completing medical residency programs in this state. Based on information submitted by institutions of higher education, it is assumed the provisions of the bill could be implemented within existing resources. The Higher Education Coordinating Board estimates there would be a minimal cost associated with implementing the provisions of the bill.
The bill would take effect September 1, 2015.
