Ohio doctor fired by hospital after saying she would give Jews 'the wrong meds'

https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/423410-ohio-doctor-who-said-she-would-give-jews-the-wrong-meds-fired

A hospital in Cleveland reportedly fired a resident after it was discovered she had been sharing anti-Semitic comments on social media.

Cleveland.com reported on Sunday that the Cleveland Clinic confirmed that Lara Kollab is no longer working with the organization after having only worked as a supervised resident with the clinic from July to September last year.

“She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic. In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organization. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system,” the organization also said in a statement on Sunday.


According to Times of Israel, Kollab had a history of making anti-Semitic comments on social media for years, dating back to 2011.

Kollab had reportedly called for violence against Jews in several tweets, in which she also referred to Jews as "dogs" and compared Israel to the Nazi regime.

Kollab could also be seen saying she would “purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds,” using the Arabic word for Jews, in a screenshot of a tweet made in 2012 shared by the publication.

Attorney character and fitness screening almost certainly would, (part of my job is working with students who get caught being naughty, and are delayed or prohibited from taking the bar exam because of it). Physicians can do a lot more direct harm.

56. That's troubling but

I think professional schools and licensing boards are grappling with how to incorporate social media into their screening processes.

When I was first licensed tnpractice - long before the advent of social media - the background/fitness evaluation included interviews with my self-selected references and criminal record checks and not much mote. I suspect that layering in social media presence makes this all more complicated (not to mention expensive and time-consuming) and has to follow certain protocols in order to protect privacy, free speech, etc.

That said, this incident reveals a big gap in the process - it will be interesting to see how this develops.

I do know that other job reviews look at online presence so it needs to be done for med and other grad schools as well in a way that doesn’t impinge on people’s rights. It is not hard to do though, just google etc. I did that myself and found some very disturbing things written by a student who was a sociopath who wanted to follow a similar career path.

97. It's actually more difficult than you suggest

We're not talking about looking up one person - we're talking about processes for investigating hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people. And not just the processes for looking up things, but how to handle the information. For example, how is the body to determine if someone is just speaking their mind or is a psychopath possess some other problem making them not worthy of being licensed? How is this communicated to applicant. What process is there for appeals? How is privacy protected? How do they guard against political pressure or harassment?

It's very complicated.

104. I haven't read all of what she said or the time frame

I assume the statement about harming her Jewish patients by giving them the wrong meds was before med school and this residency but either way she will not practice medicine here anymore due to this. She should have her license revoked as well and she should not have been accepted to med school in this country if she was expressing any anti semitism online. If the med school had known any of this in advance she would not have been accepted which is the way it should be.

* Editing this to ad more from an article about this- there is no way she would have been accepted to med school based on these statements and if you really think those other statemnents don’t disqualify her something is seriously wrong with what you think.

“According to the Canary Mission, Kollab's posts called for violence against Jews, defended Hamas, trivialized the Holocaust and repeatedly compared Israel to Nazi Germany. The group saved dozens of similar posts from 2011-2017.

In one now-deleted tweet from 2012, Kollab said, "ill purposely give all the yahood the wrong meds..." Yahood is an Arabic term for Jewish people. Other tweets made reference to "Jewish dogs" and said in Arabic, "Allah will take the Jews."”

Residents operate under a provisonal license which is terminated automatically when their employment ends. If she wants to get a license she would have to find and complete another residency.

69. Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine is not an Orthodox Jewish school

Our Mission
The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine is committed to training osteopathic physicians, with a particular emphasis on practicing medicine in underserved communities, and to increasing the number of underrepresented minorities in medicine.

We value and support public service, research, graduate medical education, and osteopathic clinical service in the community that will strive to improve health outcomes for those we serve.

We will work to educate students through the use of the latest innovative education techniques using summative and formative measures so as to graduate qualified osteopathic physicians.

Goals
Graduate qualified osteopathic physicians
Promote the practice of medicine in underserved areas
Increase the number of underrepresented in medicine (URM) physicians
Improve health outcomes in the community through public service, research, osteopathic clinical service, and graduate medical education.

https://tourocom.touro.edu/about-us/our-mission--vision/


Part of TouroCOM’s mission is to help more underrepresented minority students become doctors, as well as having our graduates serve in underrepresented areas. Staying true to our mission, in Fall 2018 we welcomed the Class of 2022, and with them, 37 minority students, our largest number to date.

https://tourocom.touro.edu/about-us/our-students/underrepresented-communities/


It does not even appear to have a Jewish student group (based on the list of student organizations on the site).

Again, I recognize the Jewish affiliation with the umbrella college/university system but I do not think it is accurate to say that she "attended an Orthodox Jewish school".

Ideally, the rabbis “advocate that Jewish students nurture their commitment to Torah by attending an Orthodox Jewish University,” such as Yeshiva University or the Touro College and University System.

The Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM) is a private, non-profit, American osteopathic medical school with a main campus in the neighborhood of Central Harlem in New York City, New York and an additional campus located in Middletown, New York, 60 miles from New York City in the Hudson Valley. TouroCOM is a division of Touro College and University System.[4]

They would be looking at undergraduate programs.

It seemed evident to me that the RCA was talking about undergraduate experiences based on their references to 11th and 12th grade students and their parents in the link you provided.

You are right in the broader sense that the Touro College and University System is definitely affiliated with Orthodox Judaism. I would just dispute the characterization that this woman went to an Orthodox Jewish school, which implies something different than what her med school experience probably was, at least to me.

In any case, I am happy to drop it.

82. There's other references where the RCA calls Touro Orthodox

Their college of medicine is quite small and is typical for most colleges of medicine it's not co-located with the rest of the university system. So yeah, you aren't going to get the full Orthodox Jewish experience there, but I'm not sure there's any other medical schools where this is the case at least in the US.

Still it seems quite ironic such a rabid anti-Semite would get a medical degree there. She would have certainly been surrounded by Orthodox Jews and would have received instruction from others.

But I don't know if a Christian Arab would say Allah rather than God when writing/speaking in English.

57. Literalism in all things denies so much.

But, it's often a necessary tool to better maintain an implausible deniability.

Good luck!

70. That is true

And with further research, I have determined that I do not believe she is Muslim.

Shame on me for jumping to conclusions.

On the one hand, it closes us off from humanity and makes us more insular - but on the other hand, it exposes idiots.

She should be stripped of her license. She's violating the Hippocratic Oath.

26. We are not far from Cleveland Clinic and my friends

husband works there as an anthesiologist. She told me the clinic put a lot of pressure on her husband to vote Trump! Not surprising though as republicans have a large base in Cleveland.

28. That's not right

but it has nothing to do with a resident making anti-semitic remarks. The clinic should never put pressure on anyone to vote any way - be it for democrats, republicans, etc. The clinic did the right thing in firing someone who said she wouldn't provide medicine to a particular group of people.

when she said she wouldn't give proper medical care to Jewish people. The main tenet of the HO is "first, do no harm." She violated it.

50. Was hoping there might be folks on DU with first hand knowledge who can help shed some light

Maybe someone who has applied for a residency or been to med school?

Just doing a blind internet search is often less effective than reaching out to friendly folks in a discussion forum.

But if you know a good site to check out - I would be happy to do some digging!

77. The press release from the Cleveland Clinic says she was only working there a few months

She was only there from July to September 2018 according to the Clinic. Typically a resident is someone who has finished medical school and is waiting to be licensed to practice. The time of their residence would depend on their specialty and how long it takes them to pass the tests.

My guess is that the Clinic interviewed her and didn't ask about prejudices or antisemitism. If they did ask, she was canny enough to lie about it in order to get the job.

79. She would have to be "vetted" before acceptance into a residency program. There are always more

applicants than there are available positions. If you google her name, posts come up from around 2012-2013 with very anti-Jewish remarks. If I remember correctly, the pill remark was made in 2013. I just don’t know what their hiring practices are for residents. Seems to me in this day and age that an internet search would be routine, but maybe not.

84. They are actually selected by a computer algorithm via the National Resident Matching Program

Basically if a residency program interviews an applicant and ranks the person as their #1 choice based on exam scores (United States Medical Licensing Examination Steps 1 & 2), medical school transcripts, letters of recommendation, background check, personal statement, interview scores, etc., and the applicant also ranks the program as their #1 choice, then there is a match (which is legally binding).

87. It depends on the program

Residency program directors are very busy people (teaching hospitals are extremely busy places) and they assume their applicants come to them without legal or ethical blemish. But if new information comes to light, they will not hesitate to act. People have had offers rescinded based on the stupidity they uttered on the internet. Lying and bigotry are never tolerated in med school and residency programs.

Yes, they make more money than the average Joe. The average Joe doesnt spend a decade or more, in some instances, getting to where they can practice in their specialty.
