Dalhousie suspends 13 dentistry students from clinic amid Facebook scandal

Thirteen Dalhousie University dentistry students who belonged to a controversial Facebook group have been temporarily suspended from clinical activities, pending consideration by the faculty of dentistry’s academic standards class committee.

The announcement by the Halifax university was made today as it reopened following the holiday break, but the decision to suspend the men was made Dec. 22. As well, while most students returned to classes today, the fourth-year dentistry students won’t resume classes until Jan. 12.

The 13 men who belonged to the group are suspended from clinic work until further notice and it’s possible they will also not return to class next week. However, Dalhousie University president Richard Florizone would not say whether suspensions would be extended to include lectures.
