NL Court of Appeal strikes down latest in string of appeals by doctor who studied at Memorial

The Newfoundland and Labrador Court of Appeal has struck down the latest in a string of appeals launched by Dr James Seraj against Memorial University. The United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) exam requires participants to be enrolled at a medical school, but Seraj took the exam between periods of enrolment at Memorial. When Seraj attempted to retake the exam, USMLE put a “stop flag” on his account upon discovering he had not been enrolled during the first attempt. Memorial’s Senate Committee on Undergraduate Studies turned down a request from Seraj to change the school’s records to say that he had been enrolled during this time. Seraj has since launched appeals with the Senate Committee on Academic Appeals and the Supreme Court of Newfoundland and Labrador, both of which were declined.
