Divisive Identity Politics at UCLA
Want to work at UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine? First, you have to go through divisive, race-based indoctrination. Then you have to commit to “combat[ting] structural racism.” In other words, yet another prominent medical school is downplaying medical education in favor of political brainwashing.
A tipster recently sent us proof of UCLA’s decline. Professors and staff are now required to take a training course entitled “Transforming Our Community: An Introduction to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Concepts.” Yet these concepts are part of the activist push to lower standards of medical education and justify discriminatory care, supposedly in the name of righting past wrongs.
If you don’t take the training, you could be fired, since “being compliant with all trainings is a condition of employment.”
UCLA went even further by announcing an “anti-racism roadmap,” which represents a “collective commitment” by all professors and staff. The roadmap is a “co-created path toward racial justice, equity, diversity and inclusion” and has $5 million in funding to fight “structural racism.” It seeks to change how the Geffen School of Medicine operates, pushing it in the direction of divisive political advocacy.
As part of this effort, UCLA is putting “equity, diversity, and inclusion” into everything from accounting and data, to education and training, to admissions and selection. It even wants to change how the school does research and delivers clinical care at affiliated hospitals and providers.
The UCLA Geffen School of Medicine is fully bought into the same divisive and discriminatory ideology that’s sweeping the rest of healthcare. Pity the professors who must accept it, the medical students who must learn it, and the patients will suffer from it.
