7 physicians sue Drexel over contract terminations

Seven physicians are suing Philadelphia-based Drexel University College of Medicine for breach of contract, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer.

Drexel University had an academic agreement with Hahnemann University Hospital in Philadelphia to train medical students and residents there. The seven physicians allege Drexel did not give them enough notice they were being terminated after Hahnemann closed in September, according to the report.

Drexel plans to end the physicians' employment next month. However, the physicians claim that under their contracts the university can't end their employment until June 30.

The physicians are seeking payment through June 30 plus damages, according to the report.
