Surgical resident becomes paralyzed and not allowed to complete training at SUNY Downstate

The story about the surgical resident Svetlana Kleyman can be found on the New York Post here and on PIX11 here.

According to the New York Post story, titled, "SUNY wouldn’t let me finish medical training after I became paralyzed":

Svetlana Kleyman was paralyzed by a spinal infection. After months of rehabilitation and learning to live life in a wheelchair, she reached out to SUNY about resuming her place in the program. But, SUNY would not take her back. So, Kleyman has filed a lawsuit against SUNY Downstate.

Her attorney is Daniel Kaiser (Kaiser Saurborn & Mair, P.C.).
