The EDUCATE Act was introduced in the House of Representatives by Representatives Brad Wenstrup of Ohio and Greg Murphy of North Carolina. The bill would amend the Higher Education Act of 1965 to strip medical schools of federal funding, including federal student loans, if they “direct, compel, or incentivize students, faculty, or staff personally state, pledge, recite, affirm, or otherwise adopt” diversity, equity, and inclusion practices.

“For both the health of American patients and the good of the next generation of physicians, it’s important that medical education is free from discrimination,” said Congressman Wenstrup, formerly a podiatrist. “Physicians should treat patients as they would themselves and their families, rather than being forced to pledge, affirm, or adopt tenets that have infiltrated higher education. This bill helps ensure that best practices in medical education are followed equally for all and keeps our nation’s future doctors focused on caring for patients.”
