The University of Florida College of Medicine has implemented critical race theory and other progressive initiatives in its admissions and academics, according to a new report from a conservative medical watchdog organization.

The report from the organization Do No Harm accused the medical school of “indoctrinating its medical school graduates in divisive philosophies and other forms of social justice activism” from the moment they express interest in the college until graduation.

“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,” the report’s author Laura Morgan wrote. “The University of Florida invests abundant resources in these programs and retains administrators and faculty members who are paid to push these destructive ideas.”

Among the examples cited in the report of the incorporation of critical race theory and diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives is a portal on the admissions website that directs prospective students to “Anti-Racism Training and Resources,” which includes book recommendations such as White Fragility: Why It’s So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo and How to Be an Ally if You Are a Person with Privilege by Frances Kendall.

The report noted that the school’s diversity statement specifically commits to taking steps to “enhance the recruitment and retention of underrepresented groups to its student body, residency training programs, faculty and staff positions.”

In a statement to Fox News, College of Medicine spokesman Doug Bennett said the university has a “holistic admissions process that welcomes students from all backgrounds, including those from underrepresented backgrounds.”

“In accordance with state law, our admissions policy does not favor or give priority to any group,” he said. “Our curriculum includes social determinants of health, which include access to healthy food, education, income, social support, physical environments, and employment ― all of these social determinants influence our patients’ health.”
