Scully has a long history with the AMA, serving as a delegate to the House of Delegates and chair of the Section Council on Psychiatry. Robinowitz and Lazarus especially emphasized his leadership in AMA’s Scope of Practice Partnership, which has spearheaded the AMA’s efforts around psychologist prescribing and other scope-of-practice issues. “Jay has been a trusted and respected CEO among the specialty societies," commented Lazarus. "Not everyone has the kind stature he has.”
