NEW YORK (AP) — Dr. Nancy Snyderman says she’s leaving her job as chief medical editor for NBC News.

Snyderman said Thursday her decision was prompted in part by the fallout over her failure to observe a quarantine when she returned to her home in New Jersey after covering the Ebola epidemic in Liberia last fall.

As Snyderman put it in a statement, becoming part of the story contributed to her decision to return to academic medicine. She will be taking up a faculty position at what Snyderman described as a major U.S. medical school. She did not identify the institution.

Snyderman spent nine years at NBC. In a statement, the network lauded the expertise she provided on health and medical topics and wished her the best.
