U of O receives notice of intent to withdraw accreditation of neurosurgery program
--Don Butler, Ottawa Citizen, May 4, 2015
U of O Watch has learned:
This is the second notice of possible loss of accreditation that the U of O residency program in neurosurgery has received in the last 5 years.
In those 5 years, three directors of the program have resigned: John Sinclair, Richard Moulton, and, most recently (after receiving the latest notice), Charles Agbi (see staff list).
Also in those 5 years, the program hired a needed star neurosurgeon, in the person of Dr. Amin Kassam, but failed to retain Dr. Kassam, who stayed very briefly.
This is the program that in 2011 fired an MD allegedly for leading a human rights complaint, according to a leaked email which is on the public court record (see articles tagged "medicine").
