This is Dr. Stanley Goldfarb in the Wall Street Journal:
The National Library of Medicine database shows more than 2,700 recent papers on “racism and medicine,” which generally purport to show physician bias leading to racial disparities in health outcomes. Yet the most commonly cited studies are shoddily designed, ignore such critical factors as pre-existing conditions, or reach predetermined and sensationalized conclusions that aren’t supported by reported results. These papers in turn are used to source even more shoddy research.
And, it gets worse:
Medical schools increasingly are preparing physicians for social activism at the expense of medical science.
Physicians are being pushed to discriminate [under] race-based formulas for rationing.
To fight their supposed bias, physicians are being bribed into discriminating by race.

This shouldn’t come as a surprise. Academic medicine is composed of people who decided to pursue a less lucrative avenue in medicine rather than build a practice. They’re more likely to be public health advocates with crazy ideas. The same is true of other professors. They seek to indoctrinate their students believing they hold the truth, while the evidence points otherwise.
