Molly A. Katz, MD, a Cincinnati-area obstetrician-gynecologist, recently was installed as president of the 15,000-member Ohio State Medical Assn. during the organization's annual meeting in Cleveland. Emergency medicine physician James M. Sudimack, MD, was named president-elect.

Dr. Katz, whose one-year term will end in May 2006, has been a member of the OSMA since 1982. She also is a past president of the Academy of Medicine of Cincinnati. As OSMA president, she said she would like to focus on physician issues, such as medical liability and reimbursements, and work to educate doctors about technology uses and pay-for-performance initiatives.

Dr. Sudimack has been an OSMA member since 1981 and serves on the association's Focused Task Force on State Legislation and Committee on Emergency and Disaster Care. He will serve a one-year term as president-elect, then be installed as president in May 2006.
