Self-study 'fake' Japan doc examined 2,300
TOKYO (AFP) - Japanese police on Monday arrested a man who posed as a doctor to earn cash, examining 2,300 people with little more than a few hours of self-study to back it up, police and media said.
Miyabi Kuroki, 43, had no experience of medical school and passed himself off as a qualified doctor after finding the identity of a legitimate physician on the Internet, Jiji Press reported.
He was dispatched by an employment agency to a Tokyo hospital where he conducted medical interviews, examined electrocardiograms and explained check-up results to more than 2,300 people, local media said.
He was undone when a medical exam study school where he had "taught" became suspicious and contacted the hospital.
