An Ohio doctor has been fired after saying she would intentionally give Jewish people the wrong medication.

Old tweets from Lara Kollab's account allegedly downplayed the Holocaust and joked about giving out the wrong medication, the Times of Israel reported.

"I'll purposefully give all the yahood [jewish people] the wrong meds," she wrote in a tweet in January 2012.

In another post she said the Holocaust was "exaggerated and the victimisation of the Jews (ignoring the others killed) is overdone".

The hospital she worked for, the Cleveland Clinic, said in a statement Dr Kollab had been fired and no patients had been harmed.

"This individual was employed as a supervised resident at our hospital from July to September 2018. She is no longer working at Cleveland Clinic.

"In no way do these beliefs reflect those of our organisation. We fully embrace diversity, inclusion and a culture of safety and respect across our entire health system."

Dr Kollab has not spoken publically about the ordeal and her social media pages have since been deleted.
