Commentary  Some facts and some received truths


Dear Daily,

The story that appeared on Monday, March 25 (News, Page 3) in The Daily concerning Dr. Alexander Nataros contains misleading information and requires clarification.

In contrast to what is suggested in the article, the Family Medicine Program is not in danger of losing its accreditation. In fact, the accreditation review completed last week was highly favourable, with specific positive comments about McGill’s efforts to provide an appropriate workplace environment for residents.

The Faculty of Medicine cannot comment on the details of Dr. Nataros’ case, due to privacy rules. However, it is important to note that there are protocols in place to address these matters, to ensure due process and to protect all parties involved. These protocols, including the involvement of the Collège des médecins du Québec, were followed.
