“Pledging to Wokeness”: Medical Students Denounce the Scientific Method’s Superiority and Promise to Defeat White Supremacy

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

it’s the end of the age of reason. By elevating ideology, the medical establishment is undermining tits essential, life-saving mission.

I wouldn’t let these racist morons treat me with so much as an aspirin.

We have seen the Democrats destroyed the greatest medical system in the world – a system that benefitted everyone. Under this caste system of racism, everyone will suffer.

Dr. Bosshardt, a surgeon in The Wall Street Journal last month:

Critical Race Theory Is Bad Medicine

The American College of Surgeons promotes the latest political quackery.

My membership in the American College of Surgeons goes back almost 30 years. The 84,000-member professional society’s sole focus should be improving the standard of surgical care, but in recent years the college has made a priority of promoting critical race theory and so-called antiracism. Like many radicalized organizations, the college has taken to punishing members who raise concerns over its new agenda.

The college’s elevation of ideology—and demotion of surgery—was swift. I saw the first signs in 2019, when the college invited Joan Y. Reede to deliver its prestigious annual lecture. Dr. Reede is dean for diversity and community partnership at Harvard Medical School. The topic of her speech was “a path toward diversity, inclusion, and excellence.”

As the son of a Brazilian mother and American father, I welcomed her praise of diversity, but Dr. Reede’s speech made no meaningful mention of “excellence.” Surgery is a discipline that demands excellence in all its stages, from training to practice. Should diversity supplant quality in surgeon performance, patient care would suffer. Remarkably, Dr. Reede’s vision was met with rapturous acceptance by the college’s leadership, and the unqualified push for diversity became a lodestar for the group.

My concern deepened in 2020, when the college convened a “task force on racial issues.” It presented a series of recommendations on how the college can “confront racism in surgery” by creating a new office of diversity, advocating for policy reforms, and adding “anti-racism to existing ACS values.” The college later hosted a leadership retreat for all surgical societies promoting “DEI and anti-racism,” with keynote speaker Ibram X. Kendi, the most recognized advocate of the “antiracist” philosophy. Mr. Kendi argues that racial discrimination is necessary to right past wrongs.

The American College of Surgeons apparently believes its members are racially biased and provide worse care to patients of color than we do to white patients, leading to disparate health outcomes. It is also sending the message that we need antiracist re-education to overcome our inherent prejudices. Such extraordinary assertions call for the strongest evidence, but the college has yet to provide any.

Many surgeons, including me, have raised concerns about the decline of our professional society, which plays a critical role in helping surgeons maintain the highest standards of patient care. We have mainly raised the alarm through online forums hosted by the college. In March, college leadership banned discussion of critical race theory, antiracism, and diversity, equity and inclusion on all clinical forums. Today, “only posts about clinical issues and direct care of surgical patients will be permitted.”

By elevating ideology, the college is undermining this essential and life-saving mission. It is deliberately promoting ideas that sow distrust among doctors and patients, insult the integrity of professional surgeons and reduce the quality of the care we provide…….

Medical Students Denounce the Scientific Method’s Superiority and Promise to Defeat White Supremacy

By Alex Parker | Red State  October 03, 2022

Medical school was once aimed at applying scientific knowledge to treat the sick and injured. But these days, we’re told society itself is sick, and it must be healed by the elixir of enlightenment. Therefore, devoted future doctors in Minnesota are pledging to wokeness and a complete righting of the world’s wrongs.

The University of Minnesota Medical School (UMMS) class of 2026 recently held its White Coat Ceremony. An article on the college’s website covers the service’s significance:

Being presented with a white coat is a rite of passage for medical students signifying their entrance into medical school. In 1993, the Arnold P. Gold Foundation established this tradition at Columbia University. U of M Medical School was one of the early adopters of this ceremony, now executed at most medical schools across the country.

The most crucial element of the ceremony is taking the Hippocratic Oath to obligate their responsibility to care for future patients with integrity, empathy and humility. It provides a robust emphasis on compassion in combination with clinical excellence.

But there’s more to it than that; each class adds its own elements like toppings to a sundae. UMMS Media Relations Manager Kat Dodge explained to Campus Reform:

“[I]t is a common practice at medical schools in the United States to build upon the intent of the Hippocratic Oath… Each year at the University of Minnesota Medical School, the incoming students work with faculty to write an oath that reflects these core elements, values, and ethics the class aspires to uphold.”

This year’s supplements at UMMS included care of the Earth, antiracism, and an indication that Western medicine isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

A handout pictured at displays the contents of the 2022 ceremony’s vow, and it begins with a confession of thievery — AKA a land acknowledgment.

Why would a medical school dip its toes into something as wholly removed from medicine as a noting of the top ping pong players in Australia? Presumably, because it’s what’s in style:

Our institution is located on Dakota land. Today, many Indigenous people from throughout the state, including Dakota and Ojibwe, call the Twin cities home.

To be fair, the students “also recognize this acknowledgment is not enough.”

Somehow, doctors are going to triumphantly force into existence unprecedented justice and defeat white supremacy. They’re also going to battle the notion that there are only men and women. In fact, by some method not made known, the people who write you a prescription for your rash will manage to defeat all planetary oppression:

We commit to uprooting the legacy and perpetuation of structural violence deeply embedded within the healthcare system. We recognize the inequities built by past and present traumas rooted in white supremacy, colonialism, the gender binary, ableism, and all forms of oppression. As we enter this profession with opportunity for growth, we commit to promoting a culture of antiracism, listening, and amplifying voices for positive change.

It’s a tall order.

The students also promise to “be respectful” of all patients’ “unique identities.” Additionally, they swear to be “authentic” and own their “mistakes and biases.” You may just need to have some sort of pain stop giving you trouble, but the new breed of medical men and women and other gender identities will “empower [your] autonomy.”

And there’s no more of the nonsense that they know medicine better than you do:

We affirm that patients are the experts of their own bodies and will partner with them to facilitate holistic wellbeing.

If you’re the expert, do they still serve a medical purpose? Perhaps they should teach yoga…

We will prioritize care for the mind, body, and soul of not only our patients, but of our colleagues and selves. With this devotion, we will champion our personal wellness…

What arguably stands out most is the group’s denouncement of science. Western medicine only has value if it’s the correct approach to physical health. Via the Scientific Method, its point has been to eliminate fallacies produced by superstition, ignorance, and ineffective technology. As it turns out, per UMMS, that was a mistake. All the old and proven-wrong stuff is right:

We pledge to honor all Indigenous ways of healing that have been historically marginalized by Western medicine.
