Assistant clinical professor
Joseph Barton, an assistant clinical professor in the emergency medicine department, was found by a Title IX investigation to have continually flirted with nurses and discussed sexual terms such as "bukkake party" in the workplace despite counseling for sexual harassment in 2012. Barton told the investigator that he had made efforts to change his behavior but was unaware it was still inappropriate. The report recommended mediation between him and the female respondent in light of her wishes and observations that Barton had been "attempting to control his conversations but was not sufficiently vigilant in those efforts," according to the Title IX report. He left UC Davis in August 2015, according to his LinkedIn page.
