Surgeon Slams ‘Woke’ DEI Rules In Medicine For ‘Erosion’ Of Quality Care

A surgeon criticized the American College of Surgeons for prioritizing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) initiatives, arguing that these efforts undermine medical training and patient care.

He condemned the organization’s focus on concepts like “microaggressions” and “implicit bias,” stating they have no place in medicine.

The surgeon expressed concern that the emphasis on anti-racism and DEI is consuming valuable time that should be dedicated to training surgeons, potentially endangering patient safety. (Trending: Trump Releases Must-See Christmas Message)

He also noted a perceived decline in the quality of surgical education due to such policies.

“America’s surgeons are not woke enough, according to the American College of Surgeons (ACS),” Dr. Richard Bosshardt wrote.

“The tool kit is an exhaustive, some might say exhausting, compilation of everything related to pushing the narrative of systemic and structural racism as the source of disparities including minority representation within the ACS and clinical outcomes in minority surgical patients,” he said.

“The traditional tenets of Hippocratic medicine, which focus on the individual in front of the physician, have been, for all intents and purposes, abandoned. Any disparity in outcomes of care of minorities is proof of racial discrimination,” he wrote.

“There is a finite amount of time in residency training to mold a competent surgeon from a fumble-fingered intern.”

“To assume that we can continue to turn out excellent surgeons and simultaneously burden surgical education with the degree of time-consuming indoctrination in anti-racism and DEI demanded by the ACS tool kit is, at best, foolish and futile, and, at worst, dangerous to our patients,” he wrote.

“I have spoken to many of my surgical peers, and we agree that we are already seeing an erosion of quality in surgery, with many programs turning out surgeons who are not ready to practice independently.”

“I have spoken to surgical residents who report a sense that they are not getting the necessary hands-on clinical and surgical experience to feel confident, while being simultaneously tasked with assimilating and regurgitating anti-racist and DEI ideology,” he said.
