    Today the Kansas City Star magazine mentioned Dr. Gustave Eisemann of KC. To quote the article, "One of the first Jews admitted to the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Eisemann was among several physicians who challenged the denial of admissions privileges to Jewish physicians by St. Luke's Hospital in the 1960s."

    [Note: The KU School of Medicine is in KC, KS immediately west of the KC, MO state line, and St. Luke's Hospital is in KC MO]

    This made me curious ... Does anyone know the status of discrimination in practicing medicine today?
