58 of Top 100 Medical Schools Mandate Critical Race Theory

A new report reveals that at least 58 of the top 100 medical schools in the nation have made it mandatory for students and staff to learn the far-left concept of Critical Race Theory (CRT).

Fox News reports that the findings by the watchdog website CriticalRace.org were recently revealed by the website’s expansion of their Medical School Database, which found that 58 schools have implemented mandatory training or class work that focuses on CRT.

“Medical School education is in crisis, with ‘social justice’ and race-focused activism being imposed on students, faculty, and staff,” said William Jacobson, a Clinical Professor of Law at Cornell Law School and the founder of CriticalRace.org. His website has also scrutinized K-12 private schools, undergraduate schools, and military academies. After the group had revealed earlier this year that 23 of the top 25 medical schools in the country enforced such teachings, the website expanded further to focus on the top 100; of the 58 in question, 46 mandate the reading of works by far-left activists Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi, two of the most prominent advocates of CRT.

CRT is the debunked notion that all White people are automatically racist, and that America has been a fundamentally racist nation since its founding. It claims that White people are being given continual advantages by various institutions, known as “systemic racism.” As such, the forced inclusion of these beliefs in medical school is intended to make future doctors, and other medical professionals of color, focus on patients by the color of their skin, rather than administer care equally, which can lead to greater discrimination against White patients.

“Approaching the doctor-patient relationship through a Critical Race lens is being implemented under the umbrella of ‘Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion’ and other euphemisms, such as Ibram Kendi’s ‘anti-racism’ approach,” said Jacobson in a statement revealing the new findings. ‘White privilege’ and similar concepts, pushed by Robin DeAngelo and others, are being infused into the medical school culture.”

“A patient-centric ethos is being drowned out by politics and activism,” Jacobson continued. “Because there are only just over 150 accredited medical schools in the U.S., and they are so hard to get into, students really have no options. Unlike universities and colleges, where students may be able to avoid a race-obsessed campus climate, with medical schools students have to submit to race-focused medical education or give up their career hopes.”

Previously, CriticalRace.org, a project of the Legal Insurrection Foundation also founded by Jacobson, had discovered CRT mandates in at least 236 out of 500 colleges and universities.
