Critical race theory is at the core of University of Florida College of Medicine curriculum, with hiring and recruitment and student indoctrination beginning the moment they log onto the admissions page, according to a new report by a group of medical workers against divisive racial policies.
Do No Harm, which advocates against “woke” agendas in healthcare, released an 18-page report, documenting the university’s use of critical race theory and social justice activism in all aspects of a student’s experience in the college of medicine.
Highlighting a picture on the admissions page showing members of the medical school taking a knee while holding a sign that reads “#whitecoatsforblacklives,” the report says divisive racial philosophy “continues through the admissions process, and persists throughout the doctoral program.”
The college uses “equity” initiatives to train a new generation of “antiracists,” including active recruitment of “underrepresented groups,” suggested readings on diversity and equity for aspiring students, and a code of ethics that explains how to address implicit bias, Fox News reported.
Education or indoctrination?
Do No Harm investigated the University of Florida College of Medicine for divisive philosophies, critical race theory, and social justice activism.

The admissions webpage reads “The UF College of Medicine Office of Admissions unequivocally condemns racism, injustice, and prejudice in all forms. We acknowledge the existence and persistence of systemic oppression and racism that endanger the lives of people of color. We strive for an admissions culture that is reflective, informed and inclusive, dedicated to building a diverse community of future physicians who share a commitment to excellence and equity in healthcare.”
The site then offers prospective students additional resources to further their “antiracism” studies.
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis pledged to erase critical race theory from public instruction but was stymied when portions of the Stop W.O.K.E Act specific to how lessons on race and gender can be taught in colleges and universities were blocked by an Obama-appointed Florida judge who called them “positively dystopian.”
“New students encounter the diversity, equity, and inclusion doctrine early and often in the many interactions they have with the numerous health equity offices and diversity councils across campus,” according to the report written by Laura Morgan. “The University of Florida invests abundant resources in these programs and retains administrators and faculty members who are paid to push these destructive ideas.”
These are the future doctors and nurses of America. These students will advance based on race and not merit. In the future we will have allot of Mediocre doctors and nurses. There will be allot of mal practice and unnecessary deaths.

The university spent $2.1 million last year on diversity initiatives and rewards faculty based on “diversity and equity accomplishments,” according to the report. It even offers prospective new hires a leg up if they participate in diversity training.
“The school has a General Inclusive Hiring Badge credential that is achieved through taking 14 diversity courses and has a ‘purpose of enhancing the integrity and effectiveness of the search and selection process,'” Fox News reported.
I know this will be taken as I don’t want a doctor of color. What I want is the best doctor regardless of color. These programs will make me look twice at any doctor and possibly push me to a white doctor knowing how hard he or she had to work to get into med school.

All of this would be illegal under DeSantis’ anti-woke bill which prohibits public universities from imposing, “a condition of employment, membership, certification, licensing, credentialing, or passing an examination” that singles out a specific identity as superior or inferior.
Do No Harm believes a focus on racism creates rather than solves problems.
“Anti-racism in the field of medicine supports the idea that medical care and treatment should be prioritized on the basis of race, while deprioritizing care for others,” the report said.
“Concentrating on identity and racial politics instead of academics and the science of healthcare a major problem,” the report continues. “UFCOM needs to return to instilling the art of healing into its graduates, rather than seeking to reshape society and ‘transform’ the healthcare industry with discriminatory activism.”
There is WAY too much to learn in medical school to be wasting time with CRT indoctrination. Besides, if I’m being wheeled into an ER, the last thing I’m going to be concerned about is whether my doctor is woke enough to treat me.

Racial equity proponents counter that an “implicit bias” is rampant in healthcare and must be addressed at the college level to affect change.
“What we know is that, especially for Black, Latinx and Native American populations, even when you control for things like income, insurance and education, there are still disparities in patient outcome,” said UFCOM Office of Diversity and Health Equity Director Dr Donna M. Parker. “Research shows implicit biases among physicians account for some of these disparities. [Physicians] need to overcome our biases by making ourselves aware of them.”
