TEXANS WIN AMA LEADERSHIP POSTS WITH TWO ELECTIONS STILL TO COME

We won’t know until after tomorrow morning’s balloting whether Fort Worth plastic surgeon Larry Reaves, MD, wins his quest to serve on the AMA Council on Constitution and Bylaws or whether Dallas internist Lynne Kirk, MD, is elected to the Council on Medical Education. But we already have several election victories to celebrate:

  • San Antonio internist Jayesh Shah, MD, is the new chair of the AMA International Medical Graduate Section.
  • Jason Sharp, MD, a resident physician from Dallas, was unanimously reelected to a second term on the Council on Constitution and Bylaws.
  • Ankit Shah, a second-year student from Baylor College of Medicine, was elected AMA Medical Student Section Region 3 vice chair; and Elizabeth Carroll, a third-year student at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, was elected Region 3 secretary-treasurer.
