SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Former University of Iowa radiology Professor Malik Juweid has agreed to stop practicing medicine in Iowa, according to an Iowa Board of Medicine press release.

Juweid previously practiced nuclear medicine at the University of Iowa Hospital and Clinics.

Before, he was placed on paid leave based on the recommendation of a Threat Assessment Team in 2010, and then was ultimately fired in August.

Following the decision, Juweid filed a lawsuit in May 2011 — which remains ongoing — that claims officials retaliated against him for speaking out about racism against Arab Americans and medical mistreatment of children.

The agreement, originally issued under confidential order Novemver 2011, required Juweid “to complete a comprehensive physical, neuropsychological, mental health, unprofessional conduct and/or disruptive behavior evaluation,” because of concerns about his behavior. Juweid later informed the board that he had moved out of the country, and was granted a stay of the order in exchange for not practicing medicine under his Iowa license.

He would be forced to undergo the evaluation at a board-approved program if he wishes to return to practice medicine in Iowa.
