Feds Investigating Medical U. of South Carolina for Allegedly ‘Excluding Men, White People’ From Scholarships

“Do we want black or white patients seeking black or white practitioners? Do Americans want medical apartheid? I think not”

It’s probably safe to say that the left has now infiltrated the study of medicine. We’re seeing stories like this pretty regularly now.

South Carolina med school faces federal investigation for excluding men, white people

Eight programs run by the Medical University of South Carolina are now the subject of a federal investigation by Department of Education officials following a complaint by a nonprofit.

The Medical University of South Carolina changed the listed eligibility criteria for some of its diversity scholarships that required recipients to be from groups “under-represented in medicine” students, following a federal complaint that alleged the program violated civil rights.

However, the complaint from Do No Harm, a nonprofit group fighting wokeness in healthcare, still triggered an investigation into eight separate programs, including mentoring initiatives and scholarships.

It is still ongoing as of December 14, according to an email to The College Fix from the organization.

Do No Harm’s leader and former associate dean of the University of Pennsylvania Medical School, Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, criticized the notion of prioritizing diversity above hard work and experience.

“Individuals, particularly immigrants and others who overcome economic and cultural disadvantages, can through their hard work and perseverance achieve their goals,” Goldfarb told The Fix via email.

“The argument that diversity must be achieved to accomplish optimum clinical outcomes for patients is without evidence,” Goldfarb said. “Those who argue for the importance of diversity in the medical workforce and in admission to medical school place the interests of students and practitioners, particularly minorities, above the interest of patients.”

The Do No Harm founder continued to express his belief that this kind of division within the medical field is not what Americans desire.

“Do we want black or white patients seeking black or white practitioners? Do Americans want medical apartheid? I think not,” Goldfarb said.

“Those who argue for diversity argue for diversity of skin color, not of world view, not of experience, only of skin color or of a Hispanic heritage,” Goldfarb said. “In a nation of immigrants, the best way to achieve diversity is to stop limiting it to skin color.”

Comments

Well, this is unexpectedly good news. What came over the Education Department that it is investigating this? I would have expected it to dismiss the complaint as irrelevant and vexatious, and reply “Yes, we know they’re doing that, and we like it”.
