Diversity and Inclusion Retreat at Tulane Med School Allegedly Stigmatized White People

Diversity and Inclusion Retreat at Tulane Med School Allegedly Stigmatized White People

“We were essentially told that providing equity in access and outcome should be our goal in medicine, rather than providing the best care to the patient in front of us.”

This ideology is like a mental disease, and it’s disturbing that it is infiltrating the study of medicine.

Med school ‘stigmatized white people’ during all-day DEI ‘retreat’: report

A veteran psychiatrist and professor at Tulane University School of Medicine condemned racially divisive and harmful diversity, equity and inclusion programming at his medical center.

Dean Robinson, a visiting fellow at Do No Harm, described an “outbreak of mass irrationality” at the prestigious medical school and hospital where he works and teaches in a December 3 op-ed for National Review.

“It now appears that Tulane School of Medicine has revised its mission to ensure that our faculty and students receive indoctrination that divides us into either ‘oppressors’ or ‘victims,’” Robinson wrote.

At a required DEI retreat, Robinson and his psychiatrist colleagues “were subjected to seven hours of stereotyping and shaming,” he wrote.

The retreat “stigmatized white people as being responsible for the ongoing oppression of others and insisted that the only way Caucasians may demonstrate opposition to racism is to acknowledge and admit to being racist,” according to Robinson.

Robinson grew up witnessing overt racism in Louisiana, so he supports and considers to be useful “optional courses covering cultural sensitivity, diversity, and related issues for the faculty and staff.” But Tulane was promoting something different and harmful, he stated. The event occurred in October.

Doctors told that equity should be their first priority

The DEI training Robinson attended clarified that equity should be prioritized over care for patients regardless of background.

“We were essentially told that providing equity in access and outcome should be our goal in medicine, rather than providing the best care to the patient in front of us.”

Most of his colleagues did not comment throughout the session or afterwards, Robinson wrote.

When they tell you who they are, believe them.

Health outcomes for individual patients are second, or third in importance with modern, collective medicine.

Words are violence.

They should sue the presenters, the individuals that chose the speaker and Tulane.

One more reason to stay away from physicians younger than about mid-thirties, along with the question of experience treating sick people. Of course, at my age they all look like Doogie Houser.

Just how stupid are these people?
equity in outcome
That’s how stupid.

I am an alumnus of Tulane’s old School of A&S and also used to do business with the once prestigious medical school.
If the wholly woke and thus unreadable quarterly alumni magazine is any indication, the medical school has irreparably lost it’s way. Woke, woke and more woke…equity and diversity is valued over equality and achievement…the last way you want your neurosurgeon or even proctologist to be trained.
I suspended giving to the university nearly a decade ago.
