Baseball doctor overstates credentials

Duff Wilson of The New York Times found errors in Dr. Elliot Pellman's stated credentials and education. Pellman is the medical adviser to Major League Baseball, whose testimony praised the recent congressional hearing on steroids. Pelman "has said repeatedly in biographical statements that he has a medical degree from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. But Dr. Pellman attended medical school in Guadalajara, Mexico, and he received a medical degree from the New York State Education Department after a one-year residency at SUNY-Stony Brook, state records show." Other descrepancies include he stated that he is an associate clinical professor at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, which he is not. He is an assistant clinical professor, which is an honorary position given to thousands of doctors.
