U of T medical student convicted of rape

Recommended Posts

Alcohol could have impaired his judgement as well. Just saying. 

But yeah, sometimes the most horrible people are good at charming, socializing and getting into prestigious professions. Know a couple people in my life who are horrible but have talked their way into good positions.

Also, wasn't there some medical student from Dalhousie (i think? I think it was in Eastern Canada) who murdered someone?

Dal had a good run of people doing crazy criminal stuff for a bit. 

 

If I recall correctly there was a guy who was admitted but in the summer prior to starting was charged in a drug related murder. They also had a med student who was found to be planning a mass shooting of his classmates and was stockpiling guns and ammo I believe.

I was in the position where I could have sued but chose not to - but I honestly might if I feel like the court process is worth it, 

And I don’t mind- if the family doctor I had who almost killed me is on this site she’ll know exactly who I am and she knows I have a potentially dangerous lawsuit against her, but I doubt she is.... oh well lol

But just try suing your doctor. You'll see how rigged that system is and how strong the CMPA is. There's a reason why physician lawsuits have an astoundingly low conviction rate in Canada. And that's mostly if someone actually dies.

Was going to pretty much say the same thing as deeman. CMPA is incredibly strong. This isn't the US where wins and large payouts are rampant against doctors.

I won't comment on the whole family med discussion because it doesn't seem to be worth anyone's time given that sympatheticsystem is not in the medical education system currently and therefore their entire perception of the field is incredibly skewed. If you do end up in medicine, I think it'll be very self-explanatory and you won't need a bunch of people you don't know on a forum telling you the importance and hard work that family docs do, and how they care about their patients as much, and in many cases, more than specialists and surgeons.

Why are you getting so upset, like I am genuinely confused. And yeah I figured as much, + the court process was a really long time and I had an inkling that her status would give her some kind of advantage over me, even though I was really pushed to do it. And I mean you can’t really say that someone you personally works harder than someone you don’t but alright, like I said I’m sure she works very hard. But hey man there are also people who work 3 jobs to make a living... they dont work hard? If we’re talking ignorance that’s a pretty ignorant comment in my personal opinion. But I’m getting confused with stories now, before you said she hates it and blames you for not warning her about it but now she’s less salty than you and does everything for her patients. Oh well, but eh, teach their own; enjoy your dinner man! 

 

And thanks! 

Sorry if I struck a nerve or something because apparently I did 

if this is the attitude you are going to have in med school and residency, you are going to have a really bad time

 

assuming you make it to med school in the first place

Personally, I never believe in intoxication defense in cases of rape. While substances may diminish your senses and perception of the world around you, there is absolutely no reason for anyone to sexually assault another even under substance influence. In this case, the perpetrator should never be allowed to practice medicine again.

Absolutely.
