Overwhelming number of nation’s top medical schools require mandatory CRT training – watchdog

An overwhelming majority of the nation’s top medical schools have mandatory training for students that is based on some variation of critical race theory, a disturbing example of how the next generation of doctors are being indoctrinated in bogus history and anti-white racism.

Based on an analysis of curriculum, “at least 23 of America’s 25 most prestigious medical colleges and universities have some form of mandatory student training or coursework on ideas related” to the far left’s toxic dogma, according to a Fox News report.

The sobering number comes courtesy of CRT watchdog organization CriticalRace.org which has put together an impressive database on the toxic teachings in education, a valuable resource for researchers, parents, and students to assist them with identifying the institutions where the dangerous ideology has taken root.

CriticalRace.org was founded by William Jacobson, a Cornell Law School professor who also founded the website Legal Insurrection and he spoke to Fox News Digital on the pervasive and corrupting influence of critical race theory in medical schools.

“The racialization of medical school education is troubling. It’s one thing to recognize the health needs of different populations, it’s entirely different to inject racial politics into medical care. Demanding that medical school students become activists is dangerous,” Jacobson said.

He added, “The mantra of the so-called ‘antiracism’ movement has no place in medicine. Current racial discrimination in order to remedy past racial discrimination is wrong generally, but is downright dangerous in medicine,”

Pointing out the most obvious problem with CRT indoctrination, Jacobson stated: “When a patient presents for treatment, that person needs to be treated as an individual, not just as a member of some larger racial or ethnic group,”

“The schools examined were based on the rankings by U.S. News’ rankings of America’s top medical schools. Of the top 25 colleges and universities, 23 had some sort of mandatory training and 21 have offered materials by authors Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi, whose books explicitly call for discrimination, according to Jacobson,” Fox News reported.

According to CriticalRace.org which based its selection of schools on US News & World Report’s rankings of the “2022 Best Medical Schools”, “The trainings can be targeted, such as a new requirement for a major/department, or school-wide. The trainings can also vary in form (ex. orientation modules for new students, new degree/graduation requirement, online training module).”

The organization’s website notes that in addition to students at the top 25 medical schools in its database, that “17 institutions have some form of mandatory faculty/staff training.”

Some examples from the database include Harvard Medical School: “Office for Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Partnership has an Antiracism resource guide, which includes works by Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo. Additionally, the school said, ‘We will develop new classes for master’s and PhD students to acknowledge the ways in which racism is embedded in science and scientific culture and work to redress these longstanding issues.'”

Harvard’s fellow Ivy League institution, the  Yale School of Medicine, “offers Anti-Racism Resources, including a video of Robin DiAngelo discussing ‘White Fragility’ and Ibram X. Kendi’s ‘How To Be An Antiracist.’ The school’s Department of Psychiatry’s Anti-Racism Task Force’s Education Subcommittee ‘is charged with addressing the legacy of racism on training, increasing the representation of BIPOC individuals, anti-racism training efforts, social justice and healthy equity curricula, and interfacing with the clinical subcommittee regarding the clinical context of training.'”

The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine “will be spearheading the ‘Development of an anti-oppression/antiracism curriculum,’ which will include topics such as ‘History and Anti-Racism: Then and Now, ‘Intersectionality and Dialogue,’ and ‘Systemic Inequality.’ The school also announced that ‘all faculty, students, trainees, postdocs and fellows will be required to complete a virtual training session in unconscious bias. It will be followed by anti-racism and then bystander intervention training.'”

The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine will “require the participation in implicit bias, anti-racism, and ally-ship training and education for medical students, core faculty, and staff” and “Strongly encourage and facilitate the participation in such training for all members of our community – faculty, residents, staff, and students.” As part of their First Year Courses, medical students must take “Health Equity, Advocacy, and Anti-Racism,” which “gives students an overview of disparities that exist in health and health care in the United States across categories such as race, gender, social economic status, age, and sexual orientation.”

“While our prior databases on higher education and elite private schools served as educational tools for students and parents making application decisions, the medical school database serves as a wake-up call for the public to pay attention to the damaging racialization of medical education,” Jacobson told Fox News Digital.
