For quite some time now, Americans have been sounding the alarm against the dangers of critical race theory.
Critical race theory teaches that groups of people are either oppressors or oppressed. It also argues in favor of various systems being torn down and reconstructed entirely due to perceived biases.
Pushback against critical race theory has picked up significantly since it started making its way into the classrooms of very young children. However, despite this pushback, these teachings are far from over.
In fact, they’re about to play a very big role in the country’s medical schools.
Concerning Changes to Be Aware Of
Medical schools that operate across the United States are required to adhere to certain standards in order to achieve and maintain certification.
However, a new report from the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) shows these standards will soon be laced with critical race theory.
Going forward, students who aim to graduate from medical school will be required to acknowledge different systems alleged to create oppression, privilege, and power.
NEW: @AAMCtoday (Association of American Medical Colleges) pushes racist/Marxist Critical Theory on medical students/doctors in violation of Constitution and other anti-discrimination laws. Would introduce critical theory into doctor-patient relationship. https://t.co/DUHsmyp86d

This comes on top of requirements for medical schools to inform students about how oppression impacts medical care for patients and the broader healthcare industry in general.
Treatment plans and health reviews for various patients of today, per the AAMC, are often tainted by “white supremacy” and various forms of prejudice and discrimination.
Intersectionality, going forward, will have a very huge role in what medical students are learning. Institutions that rebel against these latest guidelines from the AAMC could very well find themselves out of business.
An Uncertain Future For the Medical Field
The AAMC’s choice to insert critical race theory into the medical field is creating a lot of concern from people who worry about the consequences.
For instance, having medical students learn that race is nothing more than a social construct raises questions about how various races will be treated or diagnosed when faced with certain diseases.
Association which administers medical college admissions test (MCAT) calls for students to demonstrate competence in “white privilege”“anti-colonialism” & “race as a social construct”

What the AAMC’s pushing also paves the way for medical realities of gene markers and genetic haplotypes being put on the back burner for the sake of an intersectionality agenda.
At this rate, there’s no telling what the medical field will look like ten years from now.
