Texas is home to several public and private schools of medicine, with campuses located in every region of the state. Although the Lone Star State is often associated with more traditional values and ideals, its major universities are not immune to the spread of the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and anti-racism dogma that is so familiar in more progressive parts of the United States. These destructive philosophies have worked their way into medical education. Medical students are indoctrinated with the idea that the entire healthcare industry is systemically racist, everyone in it is steeped in implicit bias, and its entire structure is designed to inflict harmful inequities and health disparities onto specific patient populations.
This report examines publicly available information about DEI initiatives that influence the policies, curriculum, and activities at Texas medical schools. The quoted material cited for each school comes from that school’s website, unless otherwise indicated. This report does not stop at revealing the ethos and programs of these schools. It also outlines a call to action to restore the education programs to the state of excellence expected by Texans.
