Physicians in Training Claim Discrimination at SIU School of Medicine


Two physicians in training say they are the victims of discrimination by officials with the SIU School of Medicine and St. John’s Hospital.

 

The two were part of the pediatric residency program set up through the medical school and based at the hospital.

 

The State Journal-Register reports that they accuse both institutions of bias against foreign doctors… and of using residents in the program as low-cost labor, forcing them to work excessive hours, in violation of policy, because it’s cheaper than using full-fledged physicians to staff those shifts.

 

Neither SIU nor St. John’s would answer questions about the allegations.
