James Stuart is suing University of Western Ontario (Western University) because he alleges a five-year post-graduate residency program didn’t give him the proper education to become licensed as a medical microbiologist. Among his claims are that several key faculty members departed as well as all the other students. Furthermore, he claims assurances were given that the situation would improve and finally, he claims the program was on probation and that this information was initially withheld from him.
We can only hope that this unfortunate situation can serve as yet another stark reminder for our readers about the need to perform your own due diligence on any program you are considering.
At the risk of redundancy, please note that, as of the time of this post, Western has yet to file a defense statement and we just want to repeat that Mr. Stuart’s claims are allegations as of right now that have not at least yet been proven in a court of law.
