Vet Medicine Goes Woke

There is a lot of wokeness — even in the field of animal medicine. For instance, an enormous chunk of changes in veterinary medicine recently dedicated to diversity, equity and inclusion.

On December 12, American Association of Veterinary Medical Colleges (AAVMC) gave more than $100,000 to 18 “diversity scholarships.”

“These scholarships, sponsored by Merck Animal Health,” the announcement on the internet states, “support AAVMC's efforts as a champion of diversity, equity, and inclusion in veterinary medicine.”

“It is a recognition of second and third year students who are in excellent academic standing and in good professional status in one of the AAVMC members' institutions. The awardees are credited with contributing to increasing the diversity and inclusion of their students through project-based activities, co-curricular programs including outreach, community and domestic involvement, research, and/or earned a name for themselves in the early days of inspiring others to become inclusive. Each winner will receive an unrestricted scholarship payment in the amount of $5,000.”

Nowadays, there is a race for moral victory. The ones who show their social justice skills will be rewarded:

“College's Equity Plan Creates Affirmative Action Toolkits and a ‘Diversity' Curriculum. It also prioritizes hiring LGBT people”

“New York Private University Is Hiring, But Not If you don't pledge your loyalty to Social Justice”

“Major University Eyes Forcing Professors to pledge to diversity Inclusion and Equity or have their tenures Refused”

“Medical instructors may soon lose their Their Tenure unless They can prove that they are truly Woke”

Modern enlightenment is sure to have made its way to animals:

“Just in time to celebrate Mother's Day: The World Receives Its First Nonbinary-Named Insect”

According to the announcement of the AAVMC, $6,000 was also given through the Patricia M. Lowrie Diversity Leadership Scholarship to an individual student “recognized for showing exemplary promise as a future leader and for significant contributions to enhancing diversity and inclusion in academic veterinary medicine.”

AAVMC Director of Marketing and Communications Susan Leigh stressed in Campus Reform the importance of investing in students with “marginalized backgrounds”:

“This scholarship offers ongoing assistance to students who come with historically marginalized and underrepresented backgrounds. The students who receive these scholarships…have taken the initiative to promote diversity through their presence but also by demonstrating leadership in DEI issues in a wide range of institutions, but also having an impact on the academic veterinary profession in general. … Our conviction that even though the criteria for scholarships can be used to highlight diversity, the absence of diversity applicants to scholarships is the primary issue in determining whether any scholarship could improve representative diversity across all sectors of the field.”

If you're worried about the sexual orientation, race or gender identity of the person who is mining the jewels of your wiener dog, you'll be happy to know that there are deep pockets of directive to take care of it.
