Most of us would hope that medical schools are completely focused on turning out the best doctors.
But the American Association of Medical Colleges is pushing schools to jump through 89(!) different hoops to ensure they comply with its Diversity, Inclusion, Culture, and Equity (DICE) standards and even climate change policies.
What this has to do with curing cancer or heart disease, or knee surgery is a mystery to us.
Sadly, two-thirds of all medical schools have caved into these demands.
Here’s just a small sample of the jibberish requirements under these new policies:
- Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable Communication
- Climate Data Collection and Reporting
- Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable Faculty Recruitment
- Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable Faculty Scholarship, Promotion, and Development
- Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable Staff Recruitment and Development Students (STUDENTS)
- Diverse, Inclusive, and Equitable Student Development
There are 83 more of these moronic standards, and sadly two-thirds of the medical schools have surrendered – in order to appease the left.
Make no mistake about it. This is all a disguised version of the 1970s-style racial preferences in hiring and school admissions (since ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court).
Question: when you or a family member has heart or knee surgery: do you want the most skilled surgeon available (be it a man, woman, black, brown, gay, or whatever) or someone who was chosen based on their skin color, gender, or, perhaps their LGBTQ status in order to fill a quota?
The diversity, inclusion, and equity agenda is not just a silly virtue signal. Now it is becoming a danger to your health.
