UW has yet to finish disciplining doctors


MADISON (AP) -- Six months after some doctors at the University of Wisconsin wrote sick notes for opponents of Gov. Scott Walker's plan to limit public sector collective bargaining, the school hasn't finished disciplining the doctors.

The Wisconsin State Journal reported Sunday the UW School of Medicine and Public Health denied the newspaper's request for records on the investigation, saying a hearing for one doctors has yet to be held.

The medical school reviewed 22 doctors who were said to have been involved in giving medical excuses to protesters for their absences from work or school.

University attorney Brian Vaughan told the newspaper at least a dozen doctors received disciplinary action in late April or early May. He said he wasn't able to provide an exact tally. He said one appeal remains pending.
