Good news: Florida Governor Ron DeSantis just ordered all state colleges and universities to detail their work on “diversity, equity, and inclusion” and Critical Race Theory.
This is especially important for medical schools, which are using divisive and discriminatory DEI and CRT ideologies in dangerous ways. Hopefully this investigation will kickstart the process of stopping woke indoctrination in Florida’s medical education.
The Governor’s order is crystal clear: All institutions must provide “a comprehensive list of all staff, programs, and campus activities related to diversity, equity, and inclusion and critical race theory.” Furthermore, “each institution must detail the costs of associated with the administration of each project or activity.” These responses are due on January 13th.
The order doesn’t explicitly name medical schools, but they should absolutely be covered. We’ve detailed how Florida state medical schools are some of the most woke in the nation:
- The University of Florida College of Medicine is infusing Critical Race Theory “anti-racism” into its entire Doctor of Medicine program, as we proved in a comprehensive report.
- The UF College of Medicine also offered a scholarship that explicitly banned whites from applying, causing us to file to federal civil rights complaint that forced the school to abandon the scholarship.
- Florida Atlantic University Schmidt College of Medicine forces applicants to prove how they believe in “anti-racism” and oppose “systemic racism.”
- The FAU College of Medicine also offers extremely offensive and divisive staff training videos, which include statements like “Whites, your life reflects and reproduces whiteness” and “Systemic racism is you.”
The list goes on. It’s all but certain that every Florida state medical school is pushing DEI and CRT on faculty and students. Kudos to Governor DeSantis for digging into this crisis. It’s the first step to getting divisive and discriminatory ideology out of medical school and all of health care.
