I viewed a webinar this weekend featuring Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, a retired nephrologist who used to be a medical school administrator at the University of Pennsylvania– an Ivy League institution. The webinar was sponsored by the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, of which I am a member.
Dr. Goldfarb describes how he used to help direct and develop curriculum. When a new boss arrived, he was told there was too much science being taught, and that instead we needed to be training medical students to become political advocates. After he retired, he formed and now leads the Do No Harm organization.
He describes the national movement to make health care and medical school “woke”. Moreover, he briefly mentions the UNC School of Medicine as the most woke in the entire country. He labels this overall movement as a rejection of logic and reason. The webinar is found below:
