LANSING, Mich. — The former Dean of Osteopathic Medicine at Michigan State University will practice medicine no more.

According to the Attorney General, William D. Strampel, has permanently surrendered his license to practice medicine as a doctor of osteopathic medicine and was ordered to pay a $35,000 fine to the State of Michigan.

The release states that a Consent Order was entered by the Disciplinary Subcommittee of the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery, which also suspended Strampel’s license in August after he was convicted of charges related to the Larry Nassar scandal.

“Today’s action by the Disciplinary Subcommittee will ensure that this man will never again use his medical license or his authority to harass, discriminate, demean, sexually proposition and/or sexually assault female students – or anyone else, for that matter,” said A.G. Dana Nessel. “He wielded both with reckless abandon, tarnishing the college and the profession he was hired to uphold.”

Orlene Hawks, director of the state’s Department of Licensing & Regulatory Affairs, said: “While the harm caused by William Strampel cannot be undone, I appreciate the hard work of the AG’s Office and the support of the Board of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in making sure that his medical license will be permanently surrendered so that he will never be in a position of practicing medicine in Michigan again.”

Strampel was Nassar’s supervisor at MSU and dean of the medical school from 2002 until he was fired in 2018.

He was convicted in June 2019 of three charges: one count of Misconduct in Office and two counts of Willful Neglect of Duty.

He was sentenced by Ingham County Circuit Judge Joyce Draganchuk to 11 months in Ingham County Jail on the first count and one year in jail on the other two counts, to be served concurrently.
