AMA Welcomes Television Doctors in Salute to Medical Graduates

Drawing on almost 30 years of experience as the CEO of Medweb, Dr. Peter Killcommons runs a range of divisions, including radiology, and telemedicine. In addition, Dr. Peter Killcommons is involved in several philanthropic pursuits and is a supporter of the American Medical Association (AMA).

The organization has welcomed actors who portrayed medical professionals on-screen as they saluted over 30,000 students set to graduate this Spring. Dubbed the ‘AMA Tribute to the Medical School Class of 2020,’ the virtual event took place on May 20 and featured cast members from the television program Scrubs, among others.

Other participants during the event included U.S. surgeon general Jerome M. Adams, MD, and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases director Anthony S. Fauci, MD.

The event was also led by the actor and comedian Brian Unger and was live-streamed on the AMA’s YouTube and Facebook pages. AMA President Patrice A. Harris, M.D., stated that the students are graduating into a medical field with unforeseen challenges, making it vital to celebrate their commitment to the profession.
