Medic poses with corpse

5 February 2010

Erica Katz, a physician from the Stony Brook University Medical Centre, apologised to faculty members for pasting a photo of one of her former classmates posing over a corpse and giving two thumbs up. It is yet to be decided what, if any, disciplinary action will be taken. The medical school will develop a set of guidelines advising students of what is and isn’t appropriate to post on social networking sites.
