The Association of American Medical Colleges released new standards for teaching medicine that require students to achieve “competencies” in “white privilege,” “anti-colonialism,” and “race as a social construct,” among other race-essentialist ideas. “Since the founding of the United States, there have been systemic health and health care inequities grounded in racism, sexism, homophobia, classism, and other forms of discrimination that still permeate our current health system,” the “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Competencies Across the Learning Continuum,” which the AAMC released this month, states............ Race Medicine: New Medical School Standards Require ‘Competencies’ in ‘White Privilege,’ ‘Anti-Colonialism’
My Take - Diversity without accomplishment is philosophy without form and incompetence without consequence. Are there fewer blacks, Hispanics or some other favored group less represented in medicine. It seem so, but so what, I don't care. If they're failing to do the work academically, why in the world would we want them out in the real world impacting lives and failing? And all this crap about "white privilege" and "anti-colonialism" is nothing more than Orwellian horsepucky. If they can't cut it then they should be out.
