NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

The group that sets the standards for medical education recently released standards that force students to study and apply ideology typically pushed by the far-left while integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion into formal curricula. 

The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) published the New and Emerging Areas in Medicine series to help students benefit from "advancements in medical education over the past 20 years," and the third report from the collection "focuses on competencies for diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI)."

The report notes that recent medical school graduates must demonstrate "knowledge about the role of explicit and implicit bias in delivering high-quality healthy care," "describe past and current examples of racism and oppression," identify "systems of power, privilege and oppression and their impacts on health outcomes" including "White privilege, racism, sexism, heterosexism, ableism, religious oppression" and "articulate race as a social construct that is a cause of health and health care inequities."

Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, a board-certified kidney specialist, is the Board Chair of Do No Harm, a group of medical professionals dedicated to eliminating political agendas from healthcare. He feels the AAMC is doing more harm than good with its new standards that he believes will irk the American people. 

"The AAMC agenda means that critical race theory will be an integral part of the education of medical students and this can only lead to discrimination against one racial group vs. another. One of the leaders of CRT, Dr. Ibrim Kendi, has declared that past discrimination can only be cured by future discrimination. I do not think the American people will like this kind of health care," Dr. Goldfarb told Fox News Digital.

"The AAMC sets the standards for medical education," Dr. Goldfarb continued. "This latest set of expectations for the education of medical students and residents is nothing more than indoctrination in a political ideology and can only detract from achieving a health care system that treats all individual patients optimally."

In May, Legal Insurrection’s, which monitors CRT curricula and training in higher education, found that at least 39 of America’s 50 most prestigious medical colleges and universities have some form of mandatory student training or coursework on ideas related to critical race theory. 

"The national alarm should be sounding over the racialization of medical school education. The swiftness and depth to which race-focused social justice education has penetrated medical schools reflects the broader disturbing trends in higher education," Legal Insurrection founder William A. Jacobson told Fox News Digital at the time.

Jacobson, a clinical professor of law at Cornell Law School, also found that 39 of the top 50 medical schools "have some form of mandatory student training or coursework" related to CRT and 38 offered materials by authors Robin DiAngelo and Ibram Kendi, whose books he said explicitly call for discrimination. 

"Mandatory so-called 'anti-racism' training centers ideology, not patients, as the focus of medical education. This is a drastic change from focusing on the individual, rather than racial or ethnic stereotypes," Jacobson said. 

In 2021, the American Medical Association (AMA) committed to utilizing CRT in a variety of ways and criticized the idea that people of different backgrounds should be treated the same. All 50 schools examined by are accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, which sponsors the Association of American Medical Colleges, which has also taken steps to support anti-racist initiatives, and the AMA. 

Jacobson believes "Diversity, Equity and Inclusion entrenched bureaucracies promote, protect and relentlessly expand their administrative territory in medical schools," but the resources should instead be used "to expand medical knowledge and patient care, not to enforce an ideological viewpoint."


The Association of American Medical Colleges sent Fox News Digital the following statement:

"Our goal, and the goal of every medical school, is to recruit a diverse class of talented medical students and educate them to Boost the health of their patients and the communities they serve in an evidence-based manner. Students must learn to consider all factors that affect health. As science advances and we understand more about what impacts health, medical schools will incorporate these discoveries into their curricula.

The AAMC’s responsibility is to work with our member institutions to disseminate effective new curricular approaches based on scientific evidence. With the common goal of achieving better health, we must recognize that changes to medical school curricula based on evolving evidence will ultimately help us achieve that.

The recently released competencies are grounded in the STEM disciplines that are taught in medical school and that future physicians need to care for their patients.  

We have evidence that supports that race is a social construct, and there is a growing body of evidence about what race is and isn’t, and its impact on health. These new insights are improving medical practice and allow us to shift our thinking in medical education to better prepare tomorrow’s doctors.

The medical profession is grounded in the human interaction between doctor and patient and the factors that affect a patient’s health. We have an obligation to address and mitigate the factors that drive racism and other biases in health care and prepare physicians who are culturally responsive and trained to address these issues. Ignoring these facts would be detrimental to being able to provide sensitive, individualized, and medically appropriate care to each patient. The next generation of physicians must have the comprehensive skills and knowledge needed to heal all those in their care."

The article was updated to include a statement from the AAMC.

Killexams : VR For Education: How The World Already Changes Its Approach To Training

Founder and Member of the Management Board at HQSoftware.

The education industry today is facing a major challenge. Should educational facilities and businesses embrace modern technology in their training programs?

More often than not, technological progress comes to every industry, including education. However, the ability of the business to embrace technology depends on several factors, such as the goal of the training or budget.

One of the most versatile and efficient technologies being applied to training programs is virtual reality. VR makes it possible to bring together the missing pieces that make any learning process truly effective: interactivity, engagement and visual representation.

But it's important to note that some companies may be perfectly fine sticking to traditional education or applying VR to particular steps of education only—for example, welders need practical experience with their equipment, and it is easier to achieve with training in the real world. For this case, VR training lacks appropriate force feedback and manipulators that resemble welding machines; however, it can be used for learning the principles of brazing, adhesive bonding and more.

The global market of VR in education is projected to reach $13,098 million by 2026. In 2018, the annual figure was as little as $656 million. Just imagine: compound annual growth in this sector is expected to be around 43% for this period.

This tremendous growth is explained by the benefits VR brings to education.

• Learners feel 40% more confident when studying using VR compared to classroom training.

• On a large scale, VR learning can be more cost-efficient.

• VR learners complete their training four times faster than those in classrooms.

Despite having tons of benefits, VR has limitations too. For example:

• Building VR training solutions has an expensive barrier of entry, even though they save budgets tremendously in the long run.

• VR is not suitable for every training scenario. Sometimes it’s better to examine other options, like blending traditional methods with VR.

• The majority of solutions lack force feedback features that are crucial for learning practical skills.

Let's start with the benefits and see how these advantages are demonstrated in the various types of educational VR applications.

Soft Skills Training

According to one study, VR learners are 275% more confident about applying soft skills learned in VR than classroom learners. By providing VR tools for employee training in soft skills, such as conflict resolution, critical thinking, logical reasoning, etc., employees can practice with virtual people without the need to involve extra staff for training.

Reconstruction Of Events

A VR simulation can recreate clearly how and why an accident happened and teach employees how to behave more safely in similar situations. Some companies are already building such solutions, such as The Boiler Room, and using these VR apps at manufacturing facilities to train workers on following safety protocols—for example, when the plant is on fire or when a worker gets hurt using equipment.

Sport Skills

With VR, it’s possible to polish sports skills. Users benefit from VR sports solutions not only because they are fun to use but also because they provide a real opportunity to practice and work on real skills. VR Motion Learning's sports education programs, for example, help optimize motion techniques by analyzing the individual biomechanics of users. The solution offers an authentic tennis experience with realistic physics and even allows users to participate in comprehensive virtual tournaments.

Medical Manipulations

Solutions like Immertec allow for collaboration on live surgical cases no matter where the participants are located. Doctors can "stream" live surgeries, enriched with extra data, for any interested participants. The users can observe the surgery and up to four live medical imaging feeds, and the whole experience is customizable for each participant.

AR AR For Learning

AR is also used for immersive training, and here we have an example of successful technical training done in AR. Field workers and engineers at manufacturing facilities need proper hands-on training to perform their jobs efficiently and in accordance with all safety precautions. Solutions such as 3spin Learning allow for training workers using AR as a substitute for dull manuals and pictures. With AR, workers can learn how to perform anything from day-to-day tasks to emergency responses to equipment failure and dangerous situations.

When VR Is Not The Best Option

Of course, there are situations when VR is not the best solution due to its limitations.

Again, when hands-on experience with particular equipment is a must, a VR solution should come with custom manipulators that will help students really feel what they do—like welders. Crafting these manipulators that will resemble real equipment is extremely expensive.

Also, extra expenses are caused by the need to employ a storyboard writer—a specialist who will create a thought-out description of an upcoming VR education experience. Usually, it is an expensive specialist with a rare set of skills. Usually, they possess skills from both educational and business analysis spheres.

The ability to combine these skills is vital for the project’s successful execution. It is important to describe a solution in a way that other people would comprehend and deploy the right way. If the budget for training is limited and there’s no way you can employ a storyboard writer, it is worth considering other options than VR.

To Summarize

Immersive technologies have the potential to disrupt many industries and change how we work, chat, play and learn. In terms of learning, VR is driving the development of advanced immersive learning solutions; even the metaverse is a descendant of VR.

Nevertheless, there are other effective options. For some companies, it could be better to use VR for only a part of their educational program, especially for those with limited educational budgets or focused on hands-on practice with real equipment.

I believe this is what a significant part of the future of global training will look like—immersive, interactive and much more efficient, thanks in part to the use of VR and AR.

Killexams : Woman battling tumor fights for medical records from sperm donor

Laura High has a tumor at the base of her brain, but she says that's not her defining characteristic.

High is a stand-up comedian whose routine consists of jokes about being a millennial and living in New York City. High also jokes about being a donor-conceived child and her search for her biological father.

"I'm what happens when a woman needs to become a mother and a man needs $200," High joked at a recent appearance in New York City.

Behind all the giggles, High said she is fighting for concrete action to help protect donor-conceived people and provide them access to their medical records.

"It's shocking to learn and to find out how many donor-conceived people [there are] especially in my age group, who have never been told, and who only found out by accident via a DNA test," said High, 34, referring to donor-conceived people who discover their biological parent only through a DNA test.

High said her parents told her when she was 14 that she was conceived using donor sperm.

She took her own DNA test many years later, after she got engaged, because she said she feared that the man she loved might be her half-brother.

"I live in the same city that my donor was donating, so chances are the majority of my siblings are probably in New York City," High said. "I have no idea if my neighbor is a sibling. I have no clue."

High said she discovered she and her fiancé were not related -- but through the DNA test, she found three of her biological siblings.

All of the siblings had similar genetic health issues, according to High. In High's case, she said she was diagnosed last year with a pituitary tumor, a tumor that formed in her pituitary gland, at the base of her brain.

Without medical records, High said doctors can't prove the tumor is due to a genetic issue, but it's suspected given her biological siblings' own medical records.

When High found her father, she said he refused to supply her and her siblings access to his medical records, which High claims could have helped catch her tumor sooner.

High said she and her siblings all have hormonal disorders that she said, in her case, put her at risk of developing her tumor.

"I'm very lucky I caught it in time before I needed surgery, and before I started trying to have children, because the tumor, while it is still in my head, essentially makes me infertile," High said. "It's taking a year for it to [decrease in size], so thank God I caught it now."

As she continues to undergo treatment, High is continuing to fight for access to her own medical records and to pave the way for other donor-conceived people.

A bill proposed in High's home state of New York would require disclosures from donors on diagnosed medical conditions, family medical conditions, doctors seen, names of schools attended and criminal felony convictions.

The bill, called the Donor Conceived Person Protection Act, would require fertility clinics to supply donor-conceived people access to their updated medical records.

"It's not going to just save my life, it's also going to potentially save my children's lives," High said, adding that donor-conceived people "are just asking for the same knowledge you would get if you knew your parents."

The fight for donor-conceived rights

New York State Sen. Patrick Gallivan, a Republican, is the sponsor of the bill, S7602A. He said he believes most people are not aware of what he described as the loose regulations that currently exist around the fertility industry.

"People have the same reaction I did," Gallivan told ABC News. "So far, they're completely shocked."

Gallivan explained that state requirements vary, but in New York, there is no requirement for screening for mental health, physical health or criminal records in order to be a donor.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration requires that sperm donors be tested within a week of their donation. Donations are tested for nine sexually transmitted diseases, but certain donors could be tested for more, according to a 2020 FDA pamphlet.

Gallivan's bill would create action against fertility fraud and a doctor would not use reproductive tissue from a donor if the recipient did not consent. If a doctor used a donation that was not the one a client consented to use, it would become a crime of aggravated assault, according to the bill.

In High's case, she claims the sperm donation her mother received was not the one her mother and father selected. She said she later found that her biological father was a colleague and friend of her mother's OB-GYN.

High has advocated for Gallivan's bill on TikTok, where she has more than 10 million likes on her platform.

Gallivan said his bill would help provide structure to New York fertility procedures. Currently, for example, it is not illegal for a doctor to switch out a promised sperm donation with any other donation or a doctor's own sample.

The bill also would supply a definition of professional misconduct for physicians, physician's assistants and specialist assistants. Fertility clinics would have to disclose donor information such as medical records, prior felonies and previous doctor visits, according to Gallivan.

The bill would require that information would have to be updated as children become adults and donors find more potential medical issues as they age.

New York State Sen. George Borrello, a Republican, co-sponsored the bill and said there is no reason for donor-conceived children to suffer mental and physical health issues when genetic testing and background checks are widely available.

"If you buy a vehicle, that used car that has some problems, you have recourse," Borrello said. "In this, you're talking about a human being, a life."

Gallivan and Borrello said that no one from the fertility industry has reached out to their offices directly, but emphasized that this area in protecting children is one of the few bipartisan efforts they think everyone can support.

The bill is currently in the New York Senate's Health Committee, where Gallivan and Borrello say they are pushing their colleagues to see the necessity of this bill.

While there are other bills around the U.S. that deal with donor anonymity, this is the first proposed bill that would directly provide access to medical records for donor-conceived people.

ABC News reached out to six fertility clinics in the New York area for comment on the bill. None have responded.

Richard Vaughn, the founder of International Fertility Law Group, said that the New York bill is a good start, but that laws need to look at the fertility industry as a whole.

He said donor-conceived children, the donors and the parents all have to be represented, but the bill only looks at protection for the children.

"I don't think anybody disagrees with the part that it's so important that donor-conceived kids have accurate information about their medical history and their genetic heritage, Vaughn said. "So the trick is balancing all three of those, and in the middle, you've got medical providers."

Vaughn said in his practice, about half of parents choose to tell their kids if they are donor-conceived.

Vaughn said the issue is balancing the health of the family with the accessibility of donors. He said there is a fear that shifting to making more personal information about donors accessible would cause fewer people to donate.

"All donations should be open," Vaughn said. "That's healthy for the donor-conceived children, it's healthy for the parents to know that this isn't something you really have to hide."

Georgetown Law professor Susan Crockin, who specializes in fertility ethics, said she believes New York's law could be the start of a national trend.

She said she hopes new laws don't go too far to place an "impossible burden" on providers to fully investigate every donor.

"My biggest hope is that we have laws that are reasonable, and that provide more assurances, that donors don't shrink back from it, but that we supply everybody more background and more context for who they are," Crockin added.

Editor’s note: This story has been updated. A previous version incorrectly identified High’s tumor as a brain tumor. It is a pituitary tumor, according to High.

Lakeland Regional Health recently broke ground at its Interstate-4 and Kathleen Road location. Once complete, along with offering primary care and specialty care, the I-4 location will be home to Lakeland Regional Health’s Graduate Medical Education residency program, with nearly 200 residents in the program once it is fully operational. Currently, four residencies have received accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education: general surgery, internal medicine, psychiatry and a surgical critical care fellowship. The organization is exploring future residency programs in emergency medicine, family medicine, obstetrics and gynecology and transitional year. Once the I-4 location opens, Lakeland Regional Health will have nearly 20 facilities in Polk and Hillsborough counties.

Killexams : ACMC welcomes Family Medicine Specialist Dr. Lindsey Mellott

Aug. 1—ASHTABULA — Family Medicine Specialist Dr. Lindsey Mellott has joined the medical staff of Ashtabula County Medical Center.

Mellott sees patients at Jefferson Family Health Center, 234 N. Chestnut St.

Mellott empowers patients through education, helping them learn healthy habits to prevent or minimize illness. She believes in shared decision-making about treatment plans to help patients achieve optimal health and wellness.

Patients say they appreciate that Mellott takes time to listen and that she shows compassion when they have concerns about health issues.

A family medicine provider offers comprehensive, personal health care — from routine checkups and preventive health, to diagnosing and treating common illnesses and injuries. They also learn a patient's family medical history and will monitor changes in the patient's health as they age. A patient may only think to see them when they are sick but visiting them for annual exams — wellness checks — is just as important. A family medicine provider becomes a partner in a patient's long-term health.

Mellott earned her medical degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed her residency at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center — Horizon. She is a member of the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians and the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

To schedule an appointment with Mellott at Jefferson Family Health Center, call 440-997-6969.
