Dal and local health authority gave unfair treatment to doctors, says CAUT report

January 18, 2016

A new report has supported the claims of three doctors who say they were unfairly disciplined by Dalhousie University and the former Capital District Health Authority more than ten years ago, according to CBC. The report was commissioned by the Canadian Association of University Teachers, and found that the doctors were disciplined in “career-threatening ways” after receiving official complaints from colleagues for challenging the authority of department heads and not being team players. The report also found that the policies governing the relationship between Dal and CDHA failed to protect academic freedom. CBC | CAUT
