The Grand Forks Herald reports that Potti has worked at the Cancer Center of North Dakota since May. His new boss, William Noyes, told the paper that
…Potti is a victim of unfair accusations and the negative news “is a dead issue.”
Potti resigned from Duke in late 2010, and joined the Coastal Cancer Center in South Carolina sometime last year. He left that post in February following a “60 Minutes” episode focused on questions about his work at Duke involving hundreds of patients in clinical trials. Although there had been scientific questions about Potti’s work for a few years, the story really began to unravel when The Cancer Letter reported that he had lied about having a Rhodes Scholarship on a grant application.
The oncologist has medical licenses in various states, two of which — Missouri and North Carolina — have reprimanded him. He has settled at least 11 cases of malpractice for$75,000 or more, as we reported in December.
Potti completed part of his training in North Dakota, which gave him a license to practice medicine on July 27, after he had been working on a provisional license since May, according to the Grand Forks Herald.
