Every now and then some conservative proposes that we staple green cards to any foreign students back right after he receives this diploma. I counter that proposal by proposing that stories like this be stapled to the front of anyone who thinks thats a good idea.
The October issue of the Journal of Medical Ethics contains a case study involving Muslim medical students who refuse to examine female patients because its against their religion.
A recent article published in the Journal of Medical Ethics grappled with that question in the context of male Muslim medical students refusing to learn how to examine females because they believe it is wrong to touch women to whom they are not married or related. The article arguespersuasively in my viewthat medical conscience should not extend this far because it would result in future physicians lacking an essential competency:
And by essential competency, were talking about medical schools graduating Dr. Mohammeds who have no ability or interest in treating the medical problems of half the human race. Thats about as essential as we can get.
This isnt a minor technical issue. I blogged a few weeks ago about what the impact of gender apartheid medicine in Burundi is doing to Muslim women there.
There are only three female and 15 male gynecologists in the whole of Burundi. One of them, who wants to remain anonymous, says that she is always overbooked and that most of her patients are Muslim.
Burundi has some of the worst infant mortality rates in the world. The worst infant mortality rates in the world are in Afghanistan. Even Saudi Arabia, which is wallowing in wealth, has an infant mortality rate that is worse than the Israeli West Bank, which has access to Israeli medical services. As is life expectancy for women in Saudi Arabia.
Muslim gender apartheid has a number of troubling implications, but one of them is the denial of medical services to women. The more Muslim doctors we graduate, the more we will run into this problem.
>>, says that she is always overbooked and that most of her patients are Muslim.<<
If you are stupid enough to stay muslim you are stupid enough to suffer the consequences.

Simple answer is to FAIL them and don’t allow them to become doctors.
Should review their web search history.
Refusal to learn to treat female patients should be cause for instant expulsion from Western medical schools. The slots in these schools are far too valuable to allow this behavior.
It is long past time to quit accommodating these savages.
If it happens here, fail them and ship them back to whatever islamorectum that spawned them.
New rules for Muslims only.
1) There are no rules.
In medical school (at least medical schools in civilized countries) one is expected to gain at least a basic knowledge of every major specialty of medicine...if not the “minor” ones as well.Everything from Anesthesiology to Vascular Surgery and many in between.In civilized countries Obstetrics and Gynecology is most assuredly considered to be a major specialty.So,no OB/GYN...no diploma.In civilized countries,at least.And we shouldn’t recognize any diplomas from *un* civilized countries.Pakistan,for example.
Wait a sec here....do you realize that this will lower the number of abortions?
The real war on women. And yet millions of American liberal women will vote for the guy who announced that if the winds blow in an ugly direction that he stands with the Muslims.
There is no depth below which a Muslim will not go.
We’re gonna go to war with these slime sooner or later.
Guess they flunk out of med school then.
I fear for the future of women. There truly is a war on women but the feminists - as always - are looking in the wrong direction.
>>Guess they flunk out of med school then.
There’s a lot of double-speak and it’s not clear to me exactly what happened with these students, but there is a provision for ‘conscientious objectors’ to be taught by alternate means, other than ‘hands on’.
What’s completely bizarre about that, of course, is they may end up with the required theoretical knowledge, but will never use it!
No problem. Just examine them and then send them out to be stoned to death for the sluts they are. /sarcasm
So long as a license to practice medicine is based upon demonstrated competence in ALL areas of medicine I say go for it. If muslim students want to waste four years of study and then voluntarily choose to flunk their internships, fine with me. Send them home.
Perhaps we here in America should elect a muslim president and let him lecture us about the republican war on women har har durr!
