North Carolina Rep. Greg Murphy introduces bill that seeks to ban medical schools with DEI PROGRAMS from receiving federal funds

Rep. Greg Murphy (R-NC) has introduced a bill in the House of Representatives that would ban medical schools with diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) programs or related policies from receiving federal funding.

The bill, titled the “Embracing anti-Discrimination, Unbiased Curricula and Advancing Truth in Education (EDUCATE) Act,” outlines that graduate medical schools at institutions of higher education would be ineligible for any form of federal financial assistance if they compel students to adhere to specific beliefs.

The bill defines some of these beliefs as including claims of the inherent superiority or inferiority of specific races, religions or one of the sexes, as well as claims that certain people are members of “oppressed” or “oppressor” groups based on their race, color religion, sex, ethnicity or national origin.

Moreover, the bill explicitly prohibits teachings that portray “America is systemically, structurally, or institutionally racist, or that racism is weaved into the ‘ordinary business of society,’ or that America is an oppressive nation,” among other things. The EDUCATE Act’s scope extends to accrediting agencies. (Related: Texas governor signs bill ordering the CLOSURE of DEI offices across state-funded universities.)

The bill still allows medical schools to provide instruction on medical conditions or needs based on a person’s gender, race, or other characteristics. It also permits collecting and maintaining students’ demographic data for informational purposes.

When he proposed the act, Murphy, a licensed physician himself, explained the necessity of upholding academic excellence to eliminate discriminatory practices within medical education.

“American medical schools are the best in the world and no place for discrimination,” said Murphy. “The EDUCATE Act compels medical schools and accrediting agencies to uphold colorblind admissions processes and prohibits the coercion of students who hold certain political opinions.”

“Diversity strengthens medicine, but not if it’s achieved through exclusionary practices,” he added. “Medicine is about serving others and doing the best job possible in every circumstance. We cannot afford to sacrifice the excellence and quality of medical education at the hands of prejudice and divisive ideology.”

Republicans and medical professionals urge medical schools to combat “woke activism” in healthcare

The bill has garnered support from medical professionals, including Stanley Goldfarb, a nephrologist and chairman of Do No Harm, an association of medical professionals dedicated to combating the infiltration of “woke activism” in healthcare.

“Allowing rebranded race-based discrimination to infiltrate medical education is dangerous for future doctors and patients alike,” Goldfarb said. “I have witnessed firsthand the alarming rate at which DEI ideology has spread through medical schools across the country.”

“If we fail to stop it, we risk a generation of physicians ill-equipped to meet the needs of their patients,” he added. “Do No Harm applauds Congressman Murphy for taking this critical first step to end harmful DEI practices and make academic excellence the priority for medical schools once again.”

Bill co-sponsor Rep. Mariannette Miller-Meeks (R-IA) urged medical schools to refocus their training away from “radical policies” that foster division and exclusion.

“Let’s get back to training the future medical professionals, away from radical policies that, despite their names, divide and exclude,” said Miller-Meeks.
