Doctors have to complete a certain amount of CME (Continuing Medical Education) per year to maintain our medical license and board certifications. Some courses can be outstanding, presenting all the recent data and research with knowledgeable experts giving detailed lectures on how to make sense of it all.
Some of these courses are less helpful, naturally. But check out the brochure I received today — this type of course is new. Take a moment and review the course schedule of “The Trans Ally Health Symposium: Creating Inclusivity for the Transgender Community” being presented in Atlanta by Emory School of Medicine this August:
Any physician who sits through all this gets 12 CME credits. And nothing else. No data, no knowledge, no balanced debate in search of wisdom. Nothing. Well, nothing other than hanging out in a nice hotel for the weekend with a bunch of like-minded radical left-wing sycophants. Hard to learn much in a crowd of people who all think the same thing, and who all share a disdain of basic science (like X and Y chromosomes).
Remember – this is Emory – a very well-respected medical school. We know that CNN, The New York Times, ABC News, etc. – we know that they have no interest in truth. Left-wing propaganda is their job, so it’s hard to feign surprise when Anderson Cooper or somebody ignores science to push the left-wing hogwash of the day. That’s his job.
But this is Emory Medical School.
Also remember that Emory had to call the AMA (American Medical Association) and get this course certified, so they were permitted to grant CME credits for this course. And the AMA agreed that this is unbiased scientific information which is important enough to physicians that we will count this as Continuing Medical Education.
On the evaluation form of every CME-certified lecture, they ask if you detected any bias in the lecture. They’re trying to make sure that Pfizer or Merck play no role in teaching physicians.
How would you answer that on these evaluation forms? Imagine that you just finished the lecture, “Gender Affirming Surgery Trans-Masculine and Perioperative Care,” and then answering whether you detected any bias in that lecture? How can you pinpoint a biased speaker when the entire program is based on bias? What would you say? “Well, um, let’s start with that phrase, ‘Gender-Affirming’…”
It is actually permissible to offer biased information in CME lectures, in some cases, as long as it is clearly labeled as opinion, and time is granted for opposing opinions, as well as for discussion afterwards. I wonder if they’re following this rule in this course? Is anyone lecturing on the downsides of treating psychiatric disease with surgical genital mutilation? If not, why not?
The left destroys everything it touches.
And it touches everything. Government, medicine, schools, news media, energy companies, churches, sports, transportation systems, banking – the left wants to control everything.
And it destroys everything it touches.
Everything. Every time.
