According to a new watchdog report, an overwhelming majority of the nation’s top medical schools require mandatory critical race theory training.
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 ideals, per BizPacReview.
The number comes from the critical race theory watchdog organization CriticalRace.org, which boasts a vast database on the toxic ideals spreading throughout education in this country.
“The racialization of medical school education is troubling,” CriticalRace.org founder William Jacobson, a Cornell Law School professor, said. “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.”
“The mantra of the so-called ‘antiracism’ movement has no place in medicine,” he added. “Current racial discrimination in order to remedy past racial discrimination is wrong generally, but is downright dangerous in medicine.”
“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,” he continued.
According to Fox News, the schools examined were based on U.S. News’ rankings of America’s top medical schools. Indeed, out of the 25 colleges and universities, 23 had some sort of mandatory critical race theory training and 21 have offered materials by authors Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi.
“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 website states.
Medical schools including Harvard, Johns Hopkins, University of Chicago and Yale have mandatory critical race theory trainings, per the website.
