U. Minnesota Medical School’s White Coat Ceremony Included ‘Woke’ Pledge

“We recognize the inequities built by past and present traumas rooted in white supremacy, colonialism, the gender binary, ableism, and all other forms of oppression”

This is blatant political indoctrination, bordering on religious devotion to social justice. It’s scary.

Campus Reform reports:

Students recite woke pledge during white coat ceremony

The University of Minnesota Medical School (UMMS) class of 2026 recited an oath during the white coat ceremony that included references to anti-racism, climate advocacy, commitment toward indigenous ways of healing, and collaboration with political and social systems.

handout provided at the ceremony indicated the oath was written by the oath writing committee, which comprised fifteen medical students in the class of 2026.

Students began the oath by stating, “Our institution is located on Dakota land…We commit to uprooting the legacy and perpetuation of structural violence deeply embedded within the health care system.”

“We recognize the inequities built by past and present traumas rooted in white supremacy, colonialism, the gender binary, ableism, and all other forms of oppression,” the oath continued.

UMMS Media Relations Manager Kat Dodge told Campus Reform that “[i]t is a common practice at medical schools in the United States to build upon the intent of the Hippocratic Oath to promote humility, integrity, and beneficence.”

“Each year at the University of Minnesota Medical School, the incoming students work with faculty to write an oath that reflects these core elements, values, and ethics the class aspires to uphold,” Dodge explained.

The medical students pledged “to honor all Indigenous ways of healing” that are “historically marginalized by Western medicine.”

UMMS students also committed to climate advocacy stating, “health is intimately connected to our environment, we commit to healing our planet and communities.”

“structural violence”

That’s one I don’t remember hearing before. How can someone be smart enough for med school and still have such a weak BS detector that stuff like this gets treated seriously?

I recently cancelled my longstanding membership in the American College of Surgeons when they started similar woke bullshit. Part of me thought I should stay in and fight it from the inside, but I don’t have the energy I used to. Ask your doctor if they’re “woke,” if they say yes, go elsewhere, their mind is too full of garbage to make sound medical decisions. Complex medical decision making is already hard enough without introducing a handicap.

    I likewise cancelled my support of Univ of Michigan Med School when the administration refused to discipline students who where were shutting down one of their own faculty members who dared to have an opinion that wasn’t woke or conforming to the mob rule. Totally unforgivable for any academic institution training physicians in a non-Stalinist country.

They never seem to have a pledge to oppose socialism/communism, and the suffering it always causes, do they?

    They pledged to aid in the climate change BS. What happens when the electricity stops flowing because of their climate mumbo jumbo? Their hospitals shut down, medicines spoil w/o refrigeration, no planes to go to medical conferences, no Cadillacs to drive home to their million dollar homes, which won’t have lights or A/C. No private practices to treat 11 year olds who desperately need their genitals sliced off due to gender dysphoria. No parents able to pay $100K for Johnny to become Joanie. Wonder how their pledge holds up then?
