          Dalhousie suspends 13 dentistry students from clinic amid Facebook scandal

          Thirteen Dalhousie University dentistry students who belonged to a controversial Facebook group have been temporarily suspended from clinical activities, pending consideration by the faculty of dentistry’s academic standards class committee.

          The announcement by the Halifax university was made today as it reopened following the holiday break, but the decision to suspend the men was made Dec. 22. As well, while most students returned to classes today, the fourth-year dentistry students won't resume classes until Jan. 12.

          The 13 men who belonged to the group are suspended from clinic work until further notice and it's possible they will also not return to class next week. However, Dalhousie University president Richard Florizone would not say whether suspensions would be extended to include lectures.

            Dalhousie professors' Facebook scandal complaint tossed

            Dalhousie University has notified four professors their complaint against misogynistic and sexually explicit Facebook posts by a group of male dentistry students is not eligible for consideration under the Student Code of Conduct.

            The professors wanted action under the university's formal discipline process. The complaint urged the university to suspend students who actively participated in any of the offensive posts on the 2015 DDS Gentlemen's Club Facebook group.

              Ryan Millet, Dalhousie student in Facebook scandal, will return to disciplinary hearing

              The lawyer for a Dalhousie University dentistry student says his client has agreed to return to a disciplinary hearing investigating his role in a Facebook page that contained sexually violent content aimed at his classmates.

              In a letter to the university's senate, Bruce MacIntosh says Ryan Millet is willing to continue with the hearing before the school's academic standards committee Wednesday even though MacIntosh believes the process is flawed.

              MacIntosh has said that even though Millet helped expose the Facebook page, he was nonetheless stripped of clinical privileges and is facing disciplinary measures for alleged unprofessional conduct.

              He is one of 13 male students accused of being part of a private Facebook group where sexist and misogynistic comments about female classmates were posted.

              Millet's disciplinary hearing began last Tuesday but was adjourned after MacIntosh complained about unfairness.
              MacIntosh says if the committee decides to impose disciplinary measures and maintain the suspension, he will ask the senate to "explore other options."
