on internal medicine article The article, published in The Journal of Internal Medicine, contained a section on internal medical issues, and was not published by a Georgetown university medical journal.
A Georgetown physician who had written the article was fired.
In an email sent to The Washington Post, the medical school said the article’s authors were fired because of an “unprofessional and unacceptable” conduct.
Dr. Gregory P. Gelles, a Georgetown physician, said he had written an article for The Journal and was the subject of a complaint from the National Center for Internal Medicine.
Dr., Gellas said, was told in a meeting last month by Dr. Robert W. Dube, dean of the medical faculty, that his article was not “the type of content that we would want in the Journal of the American Medical Association.”
Dr. Gels article, titled “Excerpts from my journal article: A physician-led approach to the management of chronic inflammatory disease,” was published in December 2016 in the journal.
It contained several sections on internal health and mental health issues.
The article was a joint project with Dr. John P. Luttwak, a Harvard-trained internal medicine physician.
Gells and Lutswak wrote the article, which was not intended to be published in a medical journal, said Dr. Lutzwak, who also is dean of Georgetown’s Medical College.
“The article was written in a clinical setting, and we thought it was appropriate to publish it as part of our clinical training,” Dr.
“In hindsight, we should have written a little bit more clearly, but we didn’t.”
Drs Gells, Lutwak and Dr. David M. Siegel, the president of the Georgetown College of Medicine, have been fired.
Georgetown, a private medical school in Washington, D.C., is a member of the prestigious Association of American Medical Colleges, and has been accredited to offer a doctorate degree in internal medicine since 2011.
Dr Gels and Dr Lutwin were both employed by Georgetown Medical Center.
Dr Lutzwin was hired in 2010, and the relationship was a collaboration between Georgetown and Georgetown Hospital, a medical center that includes Georgetown Medical School.
Dr Siegel was hired as a graduate student in 2009.
Dr Bhattacharya is also a member.
The articles was published by the journal, The Journal, but was edited by Drs Lutzwalks colleagues.
In a letter to the editors, Georgetown Medical College said that “it was our intention to include information that would inform medical professionals on the use of the clinician-driven approach for internal medicine.”
Dr Gellers’ article included a section titled “Cases of internal medicine in chronic conditions” and discussed the possibility of a referral for an internist.
The section said that internal medicine physicians should be able to refer patients for specialists and be more active in patients’ lives.
It also said that the clinico-medical approach can be useful for treating complex diseases and could be an effective way to manage health problems in the hospital.
The Georgetown Medical article was published about three months after Drs Siegel and Gellys articles, according to Dr Lulu, the Georgetown medical school dean.
Dr P. B. Bhattaswamy, a professor of medicine and of psychiatry at Georgetown, said that Dr Golles and Drs P. S. L. Sige have both been promoted to full-time positions within Georgetown.
The three of them, Drs Bhattamarswamy said, have both had the opportunity to be part of a major medical association, which has fostered a positive relationship with Georgetown.
Dr J. D. Sargent, dean emeritus of the university’s College of Physicians and Surgeons, said in an email that he has never heard of a case of an internal medicine doctor being fired for a physician-driven article.
“Dr. Sigmund has been promoted and has received a promotion in the same position.
His article was reviewed by the Board of Medical Directors of Georgetown, and he has been invited to participate in a faculty leadership program in internal medical training,” said Dr Sargents email.
The Washington Examiner reached out to Georgetown Medical, but did not receive a response.
A spokesman for the medical college did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
