Suspension overturned for intern accused of sexual assault as a student

A WA tribunal replaced the suspension - relating to an alleged assault of a fellow medical student - with conditions on the doctor's registration

An intern charged with sexual assault when he was a medical student has had his suspension under emergency powers lifted after a tribunal found a majority of patients would not be “distressed” if he continued to practise while awaiting trial. 

The Medical Board of Australia ordered the doctor’s suspension in May this year after police charged him with two counts of sexual penetration without consent of a fellow medical student.
