Hahn Professor of Law and co-director of the Law-Medicine Center, discussed physician misconduct and the process of discipline at the state medical board. “If a real wrong was committed, it’s worth pursuing,” she said. “It’s worth teaching other doctors not to behave in this way, so there’s a deterrent effect.”
