Professional Associations

A Professional Association (PA) is regulated in Texas primarily by the Texas Professional Association Act. This act applies only to persons licensed to practice medicine by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners, including medical doctors, osteopaths, and podiatrists. The Texas Professional Corporation Act, specifically excludes physicians, surgeons and other doctors of medicine from the professional corporation’s act. All other professionals should consider professional corporations, regular corporations, limited liability corporations, professional limited liability corporations and registered limited liability partnerships.
