Traveling these next few days. But I still have time to bring a warning. Do not get sick, my dear reader, or if you do get sick, seek out a homeopath.
When did medicine start sounding like a cult?
The Columbia Medical School has altered its hippocratic oath to include pledges of fealty to Neo-Marxist and woke ideology. pic.twitter.com/JT7EsqgChy

This was from 2021 at Columbia, welcoming the new class, and allowing them to write their own oath.
It swears to uphold Woke & DIE. As a service to mankind, I reprint the full oath (found here). The bolding is original.
Class of 2025 Oath
“We enter the profession of medicine with appreciation for the opportunity to build on the scientific and humanistic achievements of the past. We also recognize the acts and systems of oppression effected in the name of medicine. We take this oath of service to begin building a future grounded in truth, restoration, and equity to fulfill medicine’s capacity to liberate.
I make this pledge to myself, my classmates and future colleagues, and the individuals and communities I will serve.
I acknowledge that my role is to inform my patients, accompany them in moments of wellness and vulnerability, and respect their privacy and autonomy while empowering them to flourish.
I promise to take care of my future patients by engaging in dialogue, listening to their lived experience, and tailoring my recommendations to their unique circumstances.
I commit to honor the relationship formed between patient and physician by maintaining confidentiality at all times.
I vow to contribute to the field of medicine through ethical study and equitable evidence-based care, and to treat my patients and represent my profession with compassion, humility, and equanimity.
I acknowledge the past and present failures of medicine to abide by its obligation to do no harm and affirm the need to address systemic issues in the institutions I uphold.
I promise to critically examine the systems and experiences that impact every person’s health and ability to receive care.
I vow to use this knowledge to uplift my patients and disrupt the injustices that harm them as I forge the future of medicine.
I acknowledge the background and experiences that enrich my perspectives while recognizing the limitations, shortcomings, and biases that I bring to each encounter with patients and colleagues.
I promise to self-reflect diligently, to confront unconscious prejudices, and to develop the skills, knowledge, and character necessary to engender an inclusive, equitable field of medicine.
I commit to fostering empathy and a culture of care, not just for our patients but for ourselves and our colleagues in healthcare.
I vow to remember the humanity and fallibility of myself and every member of the care team, and to call upon my colleagues for assistance in recognition of the limits of my knowledge and skills.
I acknowledge and embrace the diversity that exists within all communities, and the formative influence that the Washington Heights community will have on my future as a physician.
I promise to respect, regardless of identity or socioeconomic status, the fundamental dignity of all patients, colleagues, and community members, and their right to quality care.
I vow to restore trust where it has been broken and to inspire and nurture trust in the relationships I build with patients, through collaborative effort with my classmates, colleagues, and communities.
Let us bow our heads in recognition of the gravity of this oath; we swear to faithfully engage with these ideals and obligations for the ongoing betterment of medicine and humanity.”
It is not only Columbia, of course, but the spirit of the New Oath flourishes elsewhere. Like the University of Minnesota from this past October. Where white coats had to swear they were on Dakota land.
After groveling, then they swore that this they recognized that “this acknowledgement is not enough.”
Nothing is ever enough.
Your death, sacrificed to their great god DIE, would not be enough.
Do not get sick, my friends.
