NC prison doctor's side job lucrative

Charlotte Observer, January 23, 2012

Dr. Olushola J. Metiko is paid $201,000 a year as a top administrator at the state Central Prison Regional Medical Center, where he treats patients, oversees patient care and helps manage a facility that recently underwent a major expansion. It is a full-time job with on-call duty and patients—convicted felons—who bring their own special challenges. But Metiko has found the time to perform a second state job, making roughly $50,000 a year reviewing thousands of cases to help determine whether North Carolina drivers should be taken off the road for health reasons that could make them a risk to themselves or other motorists.
