… expect a new category of university stories: Physicians at teaching hospitals arrested for various “pill mill” schemes.

    Anybody know if Dr. Snooki and Dr. Situation work at Jersey Shore University Hospital?

    Don’t look at me. I don’t watch tv. I know enough to know you’re referring to a reality show, but that’s it…

    The “Jersey Shore” train wreck is worth watching one episode, UD. Jersey Shore University Hospital is actually affiliated with UMDNJ. Having provided the straight line, I’ll let greater wags than me finish that thought.

    The big question is whether this was just a “bad apple,” or was he somehow enabled by the hospital/ medical center?

    There are unfortunately some, maybe too many bad apple doctors, but if this reflects a bad apple organization, the implications are worse.
