Does Fluffy or Furball need a woke veterinarian? At Tennessee’s Lincoln Memorial University, the answer is apparently yes. A tipster recently sent us details about a faculty and staff workshop from its Richard A. Gillespie College of Veterinary Medicine. It shows that divisive and discriminatory ideology has infected this part of health care, too.
The workshop was entitled “Inclusivity,” and according to the accompanying press release, it was “designed to educate the veterinary community on diversity, equity, inclusion, [and] belonging.” What any of this has to do with caring for animals is left unstated, but then that’s the point. This is about indoctrination more than veterinary education.
Naturally, Lincoln Memorial University doesn’t stop there. It also has so-called “BLEND Diversity Training” as part of its “Master of Veterinary Clinical Care” program. It’s filled with typical woke assertions about the lack of diversity and the need to fixate on people’s skin, especially in recruitment:
“The veterinary profession is one of the least diverse professions in the country,” said Associate Professor and MVCC Director Bonnie Price. “The U.S. population is becoming more diverse, and Gen Z is the most diverse generation in history. Veterinary medicine must diversify and support our workforce, build our professional knowledge… and tailor veterinary health care to the cultural needs of all pet owners.”
It’s a safe bet that Tennessee’s Lincoln Memorial University’s veterinary school isn’t alone. Such is the nature of the woke takeover of health care. It won’t rest until it has complete control over every facet of medicine – even veterinarians who treat dogs and cats.
