Continuing Medical Education in Left-Wing Propaganda
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.

Do you have to do this one sober?
Yes we are seeing Leftism in everything, but it feels much bigger than politics or liberal viewpoints. This is life-changing stuff and quite frankly Biblical. It mirrors the diabolical because it is denying / destroying life. An altered female cannot be a mother nor see her role as such anymore. An altered male does not see his role as a man and all that it entails. This is changing what God has created into what human beings wish to create in His place – the worship of man and his re-do of the world, over God.
Most of all, it harms children who are at the mercy of this new society. The parents may try to filter it out, and protect them, but it is and will get harder. I don’t know how you can even get through your profession doc, these days. I hope this course is on the menu and you can pick something else to get your 12 points.
I realized in going to comment on the substance of the symposium, I didn’t note that it seems a day and a half of nothing but transgenderism must be very exhausting to listen to.
There can’t really be that much substance in the lectures, since there’s so little real science involved. The talks must get really repetitive. And probably require accepting some pretty specific premises before the content might start to make sense.
Why do so many of you only object to these horrific procedures when done to children? Why not object as to adults, also?
I think that the answer to these questions explains the success of the trans ideology, and the homosexual and feminist ideologies.
Who picks up the tab for these procedures and associated services?
All I can think of is “cha-ching”. Trans care and surgery are the new growth industry in medicine. All the different chemicals and life long health problems will be a boon to the health care industry. Always follow the money kiddies.
Probably usually insurance, which means “all of us,” either that or Medicaid or something which means taxpayers which also means “all of us.”
The medical industry needs a growing sector.
And it’s like “racism,” if there’s not enough already they’ll create more!
Wonder what the reimbursement rate is for the various procedures.
Because I believe in freedom. Consenting adults are allowed to destroy themselves as long as I don’t have to pay for it.
It must be pretty good or they wouldn’t be pushing it so much.
“Justice” requires that you pay for it.
I will hit you up when we move from Charlotte to the mountains of Western NC.
