University of Florida’s College of Medicine is pushing Critical Race Theory into its admissions and educational programs.
A report from Do No Harm, a group of medical workers who reject divisive racial policies in medicine, told Fox that UF’s medical school mandates “equity” initiatives to develop “antiracists.”
“Those initiatives include active recruitment of ‘underrepresented groups,’ suggested readings on diversity and equity for aspiring students, and a code of ethics that explains how to address implicit bias,” Fox noted.
Laura Morgan, an RN with Do No Harm, noted in the group’s study, UF’s College of Medicine is “indoctrinating its medical school graduates in divisive philosophies and other forms of social justice activism. The conditioning begins from the moment a prospective student begins exploring UFCOM, continues through the admissions process, and persists throughout the doctoral program.”
“New students encounter the diversity, equity, and inclusion doctrine early and often in the many interactions they have with the numerous health equity offices and diversity councils across campus,” Morgan continued. UF “invests abundant resources in these programs and retains administrators and faculty members who are paid to push these destructive ideas.”

The webpage for the admissions office, according to Fox News, displayed a photo of masked students kneeling and holding a raised fist, as they show a poster that says “#WHITECOATSFORBLACKLIVES.”
The medical school’s admissions webpage also boasts that UF strives to build “a diverse community of future physicians who share a commitment to excellence and equity in healthcare.”
A “Black Lives Matter” statement on the webpage also included links to “Resources for Combating Systemic Racism,” whose reading list included a piece called “Guidelines for Being a Strong White Ally.”
According to Fox, the report indicates that UF’s medical school appears to prefer minority staff and students over whites, and grades administrators on their “diversity and equity accomplishments” as a condition of employment.
Last year, UF, the state’s flagship public university, spent $2.1 million on diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives.
