美国匹斯堡大学华裔教授因言论获罪被辞!

匹兹堡大学取消Norman Wang教授的研究金计划,因为他批评平权行动

匹斯堡大学时报的报道说,2020年8月11日, UPMC取消了心脏病专家兼医学副教授Norman Wang的研究金计划,因为他写了一份“白皮书”,批评了医学领域的平权行动。 

由于社交媒体对论文的强烈反对,王先生被UPMC辞去了他的电生理学研究金计划主任的职务。

该论文最初是3月24日发表在JAHA美国心脏病协会期刊上,论文中,王教授称“美国医学界,通过多样性,包容性和平等的AA平权扶持行动的努力很大部分上是不成功的,这是因为高等教育机构中使用族裔和种族的录取标准限制了合格的申请人数量和合法的竞争。”Wang argued that affirmative action efforts through diversity, inclusion and equity in medicine have been largely unsuccessful because of a “limited qualified applicant pool and legal challenges to the use of race and ethnicity in admissions to institutions of higher education.”

王说:“最终,所有有志于医学和心脏病学专业的人都必须根据个人学术而不是种族和民族身份进评价。”王还在论文中说,“没有可以公认的经验证据或者推论来支持“多样性挽救生命”这一口头禅。” exists no empirical evidence by accepted standards for causal inference to support the mantra that ‘diversity saves lives.

他在总结中说:“不应为短期的人口统计数而去牺牲掉我们长期的学术解决方案和卓越的表现。” 王教授说,到2028年,大学和医学院入学的种族和族裔偏好应该被消除。

 在社交媒体上爆发强烈反对之后 ,JAHA 在8月份对论文进行了编辑  ,并批评了Wang对论文的这些及其他部分。

王教授拒绝对这种强烈反应置评

8月6日,匹斯堡大学卫生科学部门副总兼医学院院长Anantha Shekhar在Twitter上发表了一份声明   ,否认了王在文章中的观点:

Shekhar说:“最近,一家同行评审的期刊发表了一篇由大学社区成员撰写的文章,表达了反对公平和包容性的观点。” “这些观点没有反映出匹兹堡大学及其医学院的价值观,也没有反映出我们为公共利益传播知识的骄傲追求。”

他补充说,匹斯堡大学医学院是一所顶尖的医学院,“以身作则和引以为荣是我们不可掉以轻心的责任。”“作为一个机构和社区,我们不容忍任何种族主义或歧视,我们始终致力于为所有人提供一个更具包容性和公平性的环境。”

UPMC removed Norman Wang, a cardiologist and an associate professor of Medicine, from a fellowship program after he penned a “white paper” criticizing affirmative action efforts in the medical field. 

Wang was removed by UPMC from his position as program director of the Electrophysiology Fellowship following social media backlash against the paper.

In the paper, originally published in the Journal of the American Heart Association on March 24, Wang argued that affirmative action efforts through diversity, inclusion and equity in medicine have been largely unsuccessful because of a “limited qualified applicant pool and legal challenges to the use of race and ethnicity in admissions to institutions of higher education.”

“Ultimately, all who aspire to a profession in medicine and cardiology must be assessed as individuals on the basis of their personal merits, not their racial and ethnic identities,” Wang said.

Wang also said in the paper that there “exists no empirical evidence by accepted standards for causal inference to support the mantra that ‘diversity saves lives.’”

In his conclusion, he said, “long-term academic solutions and excellence should not be sacrificed for short-term demographic optics.” Wang said racial and ethnic preferences for undergraduate and medical school admissions should be dismissed by 2028.

The JAHA redacted the paper in August after backlash erupted on social media, criticizing Wang for these and other portions of the paper.

Wang declined to comment on the backlash.

On Aug. 6, Senior Vice Chancellor for the Health Sciences and Dean of the School of Medicine Anantha Shekhar released a statement on Twitter that disavowed the views taken by Wang in the article:

“A peer-reviewed journal recently published an article, authored by a member of the University community, that expressed views against equity and inclusivity,” Shekhar said. “These views do not reflect the values of the University of Pittsburgh and its School of Medicine or our proud pursuit of disseminating knowledge for the public good.”

He added that the Pitt School of Medicine is a top medical school, and “the gravitas and honor of leading by example is a responsibility that we do not take lightly.”

“As an institution and a community, we do not condone racism or discrimination of any kind, and we remain absolutely committed to realizing a more inclusive and equitable environment for all.”
