Scully labored hard to bring stability to APA as it faced tough political and fiscal challenges. Identifying his successor will not be an easy task.

Abstract Teaser

James H. Scully Jr., M.D., will step down as APA medical director and CEO at the end of 2013 after a little more than a decade of serving APA in that capacity. A search committee chaired by former APA President Paul Appelbaum, M.D., has been appointed to identify a successor.

Said Appelbaum, “Jay Scully, like the stalwart former Naval officer that he is, has steered APA through difficult waters while staying focused on the ultimate mission of serving our members and their patients. In identifying candidates to succeed him, the Search Committee is looking for someone who has the personal integrity that Jay has exemplified, the stature to serve as a national leader and spokesperson for the psychiatric profession, and the skills to run this complex organization.”

In addition to Appelbaum, the members of the Search Committee are Rahn Bailey, M.D., R. Scott Benson, M.D., David Fassler, M.D., Garry Gottlieb, M.D., Anand Pandya, M.D., Herbert Pardes, M.D., Claudia Reardon, M.D., Carolyn Robinowitz, M.D., Pedro Ruiz, M.D., Alan Schatzberg, M.D., Ann Marie Sullivan, M.D., and Melinda Louise Young, M.D. ■

The Search Committee is staffed by Margaret Dewar, director of APA’s Department of Governance, and Jessica Hopey, senior governance coordinator. More information is available by contacting Dewar at mdewar@psych.org.
