The University of California, Davis School of Medicine (UCDSOM) received a nearly perfect rating in diversity, equity and inclusion by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), according to survey results obtained by medical watchdog group Do No Harm and provided to the Daily Caller News Foundation.

The AAMC administered optional surveys to medical schools across the country, which ask how they incorporate DEI into their curriculum, administration and operations. Do No Harm received the survey results from participating universities through public records requests AAMC rated each school on how well they commit to DEI initiatives.

The UCDSOM received the highest score given to a medical school, indicating that it commits to DEI 98.9% of the time, according to Do No Harm. The school confirmed in the survey that it implements affirmative action in its admission practices, hires staff to enforce DEI and ties tenure to professors’ commitment to advancing DEI.

“This particular score is the highest one that we’ve seen,” Laura Morgan, Do No Harm program manager, told the DCNF. “UC Davis answered ‘yes’ to all but one of the 89 questions on the survey. It really shows that they’re dedicated to implementing the woke ideologies that the AAMC is promoting.”

The only room for improvement indicated by the survey is in the school’s use of DEI toward “faculty scholarship, promotion, and development.” The school indicated that it requires prospective and current faculty to submit DEI statements, allocates resources towards DEI and offers professional development programs for minority groups, it sponsors, but does not fund, “affinity groups.”

UC Davis indicated that it does use a “holistic admissions policy,” which examines a students experiences rather than only test scores, to encourage “a diverse class of students.”

The school is committed to recruiting a “diverse community of students, faculty, and senior administrative staff, while fostering an inclusive and equitable learning environment,” according to its Policy on Achieving Workforce Diversity and Institutional Inclusion.

“We do outreach and recruitment with the aim of contributing to a physician workforce that will address the health care needs of a diverse society,” the policy reads. “Through these efforts, we seek to eliminate health care disparities and to continually increase the diversity of our student body with respect to those populations that are underrepresented in medicine and biomedical research.”

UC Davis also received a $1.5 million grant to support DEI initiatives in hiring and promotion practices, according to a 2020 letter which was included in the survey response.

The medical school also revealed in the survey that it advocated for DEI policies at the local level through its “Inclusion, Diversity, Anti-Racism, And Equity (IDARE) Taskforce’s Initiative,” which “catalyzes a health system wide effort to advance” DEI goals, according to its website, and through diversity and inclusion committees.

It also confirmed its “institutional leaders active within local, regional, and national forums to promote equity, diversity, and inclusion.”

“This [Diversity, Inclusion, Culture and Equity] inventory score reflects the degree to which the woke ideology has infiltrated it,” Morgan told the DCNF. “It’s a medical school that is highly rated. It’s number 51 on US News and World Report, but it also shows how heavily influenced they are by the AAMC. These kinds of policies just don’t have anything to do with providing appropriate training for our future physicians.”

The DICE inventory is “designed for academic medicine professionals striving to understand and improve the diversity and inclusion within their institution,” according to the AAMC’s website. More than 100 medical schools participated in the survey, according to AAMC.

“I think [medical schools are] trying to show alignment with AAMC policy and principles because that organization has an influence on their accreditation. They’ve got a big incentive to go along with what AAMC tells them to do,” Morgan said. “But this was a voluntary survey, they didn’t have to take it.”

Do No Harm requested the results of each school’s survey and has periodically released survey information from several medical schools from across the country to date.

“We want future medical students who are maybe looking for what schools they want to apply to to have some information about the ideology that these schools subscribe to,” Morgan said.

The AAMC and UC Davis School of Medicine did not immediately respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation’s request for comment.
