MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - UW Madison internally punished 11 faculty doctors and nine residents for writing medical excuses to protestors who lined up for them outside the State Capitol last February. The Wisconsin State Journal received records about the punishments today. The paper had requested those documents a year ago. Three of the UW doctors received the heaviest punishments – five days without pay and removals from their leadership positions for four months. Those doctors were Lou Sanner, Kathy Oriel, and James Shropshire. Those three were also among seven doctors reprimanded by the state Medical Examining Board last fall. Two U-W residents received warnings from the state panel, which recently agreed to investigate 11 others for a consideration of state punishments. And eight of those have already received internal discipline from the UW.
