Scully Honored at AMA Meeting

Immediate past APA Medical Director and CEO James H. Scully, M.D., was feted last night at a reception during the AMA’s Interim Meeting in Washington, D.C., where APA and AMA leaders hailed Scully’s contributions to organized medicine. From left to right are Patrice Harris, M.D., past APA Board member and current member of the AMA Board of Trustees; new APA CEO and Medical Director Saul Levin, M.D., M.P.A.; Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D., chair of the Section Council on Psychiatry and former senior deputy medical director of  APA; Scully; and immediate past AMA President and former APA Assembly Speaker Jeremy Lazarus, M.D.

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.”
