Hospital Withdraws Job Offer From Woman Who Tweeted About Killing Jews
According to Fast Forward, Kern Medical Center, located in Bakersfield, California, has withdrawn its job offer to Dr. Lara Kollab, a former doctor at the Cleveland Clinic. Kollab was fired from her position at the Cleveland Clinic after her anti-Semitic social media was discovered.
In 2012, Dr. Kollab tweeted “I’ll purposely give the yahood the wrong meds,” using the Arabic word for “Jews.”
In 2013, she posted a picture of her college class notes saying, “People who support Israel should have their immune cells killed so they can see how it feels to not be able to defend yourself from foreign invaders.”
Following the re-emergence of these posts in September 2018, Kollab was fired from the Cleveland Clinic, a fact confirmed by the Clinic in January of 2019. She apologized, saying “I take my profession and the Hippocratic Oath seriously and would never intentionally cause harm to any patient seeking medical care,”
Kern Medical Center withdrew Kollab’s acceptance from its internal medicine residency program as of March 15.
Its stated reasons for withdrawal were that “Kern Medical has determined that Dr. Lara Kollab breached her Match Participant Agreement when she submitted information that was false, misleading, and incomplete to Kern Medical during the interview and match process”.
