Edmonton, AB – Dr. Victor Taye Fadayomi, a family physician from Calgary, was found guilty of unprofessional conduct by a CPSA Hearing Tribunal for inappropriately touching a member of his clinic staff.
It was alleged that in September 2021, Dr. Fadayomi touched the breast of one of his medical office assistants without her consent. Dr. Fadayomi admitted to the touching but maintained that the contact was accidental.
After hearing from witnesses and reviewing the evidence, the Tribunal found the complainant’s recollection of events was credible and that Dr. Fadayomi’s conduct amounted to unprofessional conduct under CPSA’s Boundary Violations: Sexual standard of practice.
The Hearing Tribunal will reconvene at a later date to consider submissions on sanction. As the complainant in this case was not a patient, mandatory sanctions for sexual abuse under the Health Professions Act do not apply.
