TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - A University of Arizona medical board is upholding an independent panel’s finding that a former head of surgery was wrongfully fired.

The Arizona Daily Star reports (https://bit.ly/1CCt8ki) that University Physicians Healthcare announced Friday it will adopt the panel’s recommendations regarding Dr. Rainer Gruessner.

The recommendations include reinstating Gruessner as a faculty member without clinical or administrative duties, retracting unethical conduct allegations and paying his salary for one year or until he finds a new position.

Gruessner filed an $18.9 million notice of claim in March against the UA College of Medicine and the Arizona Board of Regents.

Attorney Kraig Marton says Gruessner is “delighted” but it was not yet the time for the board to make offers.

Guessner was dismissed last year amid an administrative dispute.
