Officials from East Tennessee State University (ETSU) College of Medicine suspended Dr. Hetal Brahmbhatt’s administrative duties, including his role as program director of the internal medicine program, the Johnson City Press reports.

According to the article, ETSU is investigating allegations that Brahmbhatt created a hostile work environment for resident physicians. The investigation was prompted after ETSU received a letter from the ACGME stating that the accreditor received two reports that indicate Brahmbhatt favors residents of Indian descent and meets with a select group of residents at his house to discuss the program.
