Statement from the State Medical Board of Ohio About Social Media Posts

Recent media reports have indicated a former resident in training made disparaging remarks on social media. The individual’s application for a training certificate stated the Cleveland Clinic as her training program. By removing this resident from their program, the Cleveland Clinic eliminated her ability to practice medicine at this time. While the individual’s training certificate may remain in “active” status, she does not have the authority to practice in Ohio because she is not part of an accredited program.


Ohio law makes all complaints and investigations of the State Medical Board confidential so the board is unable to share any additional information at this time. Discipline against a certificate holder or licensee can range from a reprimand to permanent revocation- meaning they are never able to practice again in Ohio.


It is the mission of the State Medical Board of Ohio to protect the health and safety of all Ohioans. Malicious acts and threats of patient harm go against the Medical Practices Act and are denounced by the board.
