You're in the hospital. Do you want to have to worry if the doctors

got that title because of DEI?
So when it came time for the admissions committee to consider one such student in November 2021—a black applicant with grades and test scores far below the UCLA average—some members of the committee felt that this particular candidate, based on the available evidence, was not the best fit for the top-tier medical school, according to two people present for the committee's meeting.

Their reservations were not well-received.

When an admissions officer voiced concern about the candidate, the two people said, the dean of admissions, Jennifer Lucero, exploded in anger.

"Did you not know African-American women are dying at a higher rate than everybody else?" Lucero asked the admissions officer, these people said. The candidate's scores shouldn't matter, she continued, because "we need people like this in the medical school."

That's all the quote I need from this mess, go read the rest.  Asshats like Lucero don't seem to give a damn if people die or are crippled because someone who shouldn't be there was allowed to pretend to be a Doctor, as long as they have the right skin-color mix.
Race-based admissions have turned UCLA into a "failed medical school," said one former member of the admissions staff. "We want racial diversity so badly, we're willing to cut corners to get it."
And that means their willing to cut patients lives to get it.

I  hope some patients who've had to deal with these substandard doctors get together and sue the ass off the people responsible.

Been in healthcare for 47 years. The intelligence, competence and common sense of almost everyone in the field has diminished noticeably over the decades. And that includes doctors.
