Two NCMS Members Elected to AMA’s Council on Medical Education

North Carolina Medical Society (NCMS) members Darlyne Menscer, MD, of Charlotte,  and Liana Puscas, MD, MHS, of Durham, will both serve on the American Medical Association’s (AMA) Council on Medical Education after being voted onto the council at the AMA’s Annual Meeting in Chicago, June 15-19.

Dr. Menscer was re-elected to a second four-year term. Dr. Puscas was elected as a new council member. The AMA’s Council on Medical Education is dedicated to advancing the quality of medical education in America and ensuring the standards for measuring its success are high. Council members are generally elected to a four-year term, with a two-term limit, by the AMA House of Delegates.

Nominated to the position by the NCMS and its AMA delegation, longtime NCMS member and former NCMS President Dr. Menscer is a faculty member at Carolinas Medical Center family practice residency program in Charlotte and has served as director of geriatric education there since 1998.

Dr. Puscas was nominated by the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and the Otolaryngology Section Council and endorsed by the NCMS. She is on the faculty at Duke University in Durham, and is the otolaryngology-head and neck surgery (OHNS) section chief at the Durham VA Medical Center.

Congratulations to Dr. Menscer and Dr. Puscas on your election to this important council!
