Michigan State suspends radiology chair in wake of Larry Nassar scandal

Michigan State University (MSU) has suspended its chair of radiology as it continues to deal with the aftermath of former MSU and USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar being sentenced to up to 175 years in prison for criminal sexual conduct.

In addition to being the chair of the radiology department, Suresh Mukherji, MD, MBA, is also the chief medical officer of the MSU HealthTeam. According to a new report from the Associated Press, Mukherji “was interviewed in March as part of an investigation into restrictions that were supposed to have been put on Nassar.”

The university also announced it plans on firing William Strampel, who led the College of Osteopathic Medicine until he stepped down from the position in December 2017.
