Disruptive behavior leads to U. of Iowa's firing of a tenured professor
- In a rare move Thursday, the University of Iowa fired tenured radiology professor Malik Juweid after he made repeated personal attacks, harassment and threats on a wide range of colleagues that disrupted the workplace.
- A faculty panel's 44-page report details the disruptive behavior of Juweid--who collected around $400,000 in salary since being banned from campus in January 2011--and says he sent a mass of abusive and threatening e-mails to College of Medicine colleagues and even improperly released a patient's medical records.
- Juweid promptly e-mailed university officials Thursday declaring that his firing "will not stand," and claiming that he is being punished for speaking out against the university hospital's alleged overuse of medical scans on sick children, the leadership of former Department of Radiology Chairwoman Laurie Fajardo and other issues. Additionally, he has filed a whistleblower lawsuit against several officials.
