Antisemitism in the Medical Profession: A Dangerous Crisis

Jewish patients face increasing discrimination and bias in healthcare settings

Antisemitism has become a pressing issue on college campuses, but its impact extends further, infiltrating the medical profession. Doctors, nurses, and medical students, who are entrusted with healing, are instead promoting hate, posing a grave concern for Jewish patients and anyone seeking equal and excellent medical care. A recent report highlights the alarming rise of antisemitic incidents within the medical field since October 7. From tearing down posters of kidnapped Israelis to justifying the murder of Jews, these acts of hatred are not isolated incidents but reflect a deeply ingrained bias against Jews within medical institutions.

A Disturbing Trend: Antisemitic Outbursts in the Medical Profession

Medical professionals have been caught engaging in various antisemitic outbursts, including tearing down posters of kidnapped Israelis. Shockingly, even a professor of medicine at the prestigious University of Pennsylvania has been implicated in such behavior. Moreover, some medical professionals have tried to justify the murder of Jews, with one nurse dismissing allegations of sexual violence committed by Hamas as propaganda. The lack of consequences for many medical professionals who engage in antisemitism raises concerns about the widespread presence of Jew-hatred in hospitals and doctor’s offices.

Institutional Bias: Medical Schools and Professional Organizations

A comprehensive report highlights the institutional bias against Jews within medical schools and professional organizations. By comparing the responses of these institutions to two different atrocities, namely Hamas’s attack on Israel and Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, a clear pattern emerges. While both incidents involved mass slaughter, rape, and kidnapping, medical institutions were far more likely to condemn Russia’s actions than the Jew-killing terrorists. Only 11% of medical associations and 3% of medical schools issued statements about the antisemitic incidents on October 7. Furthermore, the few statements about Israel had a markedly different tone, focusing primarily on preventing civilian casualties rather than expressing solidarity with Jews or Israelis.

The Role of Identity Politics in Exacerbating Antisemitism

Antisemitism in the medical profession has been exacerbated by the adoption of racial identity politics within healthcare. The embrace of “diversity, equity, and inclusion” by groups like the American Medical Association (AMA) has led to the classification of different groups as oppressors or oppressed, resulting in differential treatment. Under this worldview, Jews are often categorized as oppressors due to the false belief that they are uniformly “white” and therefore colonialists. Additionally, the success of Jews in the medical field is seen as evidence of injustice, leading to the stripping away of their privilege and a lack of sympathy when Jews are victimized. This harmful ideology has contributed to the lack of statements from medical organizations and the rise of antisemitic sentiments among medical professionals and students.

The Implications for Patient Care and Healthcare Policy

The increasing prevalence of antisemitism in American healthcare poses a significant threat not only to Jewish patients but to all individuals seeking medical care. The adoption of identity politics in medicine perpetuates a worldview that categorizes people into favored or disfavored groups, resulting in differential treatment and even pain for certain individuals. If medical institutions fail to address this hateful bias, policymakers must step in to rectify the situation. Failure to address the antisemitism problem in medicine will only lead to further deterioration, with silence towards the murder of Jews being just the beginning.


The rise of antisemitism within the medical profession is a deeply concerning crisis that demands urgent attention. Jewish patients face discrimination and bias in healthcare settings, as doctors, nurses, and medical students promote hate instead of healing. The institutional bias against Jews within medical schools and professional organizations is evident in the differential responses to atrocities committed against Jews and other groups. The adoption of racial identity politics in healthcare exacerbates this issue, placing Jews in the oppressor category and undermining their right to equal treatment. It is crucial for medical institutions to address this hateful bias, or policymakers must intervene to ensure that antisemitism does not further permeate the healthcare system. The fight against antisemitism in medicine is not just about protecting Jewish patients; it is about upholding the principles of equality and justice for all.
