    Default Senior Surgeon tells trainees to 'comply with requests for sex' - updated

    Dr McMullin referred to the case of Dr Caroline Tan, who won a 2008 sexual harassment case against a surgeon while she was completing surgical training at a Melbourne hospital. Dr Tan was vilified and has been unable to find work at any public hospital in Australasia despite the legal victory, she said.


    "Her career was ruined by this one guy asking for sex on this night. And, realistically, she would have been much better to have given him a blow job on that night," Dr McMullin said in the criticised ABC interview.


    "What I tell my trainees is that, if you are approached for sex, probably the safest thing to do in terms of your career is to comply with the request; the worst thing you can possibly do is to complain to the supervising body because then, as in Caroline's position, you can be sure that you will never be appointed to a major public hospital."
    how incredibly sad

    Absolutely disgraceful that this sort stuff is acceptable by anyone. It scares the living daylights out of me for our future.

    The fact that she feels comfortable declaring this makes me think that there is something seriously wrong in the profession.

    ETA. I've also read more. I think her advice is dreadful, but she is trying to make the point that sexual discrimination is rife. I can unfortunately see it being true.

    What the hell. Put out or you won't have a career. What a utter load of bull****
    Thats discusting. I assume (have only read the one article) that this was mainly directed at females.

    Edit: Just read more online. This is a womans advice. She says its sad that this is the predicament females find themselves but it seems hypocritical to still say in the same interview to just do it.

    I'm absolutely disgusted, not only at this 'advice', but the fact that a woman cannot find employment in a career she has spent years of studying to achieve simply because she spoke up about something that was 100% unacceptable.
