Equity in medicine is currently one of the most heated issues in the United States. Dr. Fitzhugh Mullan argues that in order to create medical equality in the US, we must target the root of the problem, and reform medical education so that it focuses on the social mission of medicine.

Fitzhugh Mullan is a physician, a medical educator, a writer and a contrarian. Although he is the product of traditional institutions (Harvard College and the University of Chicago Medical School) and has worked in traditional institutions (the US Public Service, the policy journal Health Affairs, and the faculty of George Washington University), he has often been a critic of business as usual. He went to Mississippi as a civil rights worker during medical school and wrote a book about it -- White Coat, Clenched Fist. In his life as a pediatrician, administrator, writer, Assistant Surgeon General, and as a teacher of medical and public health students, he has worked against complacency in the medical system and for health equity as the foundational principle of the healing arts.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx

Flexner was a hitman and his legacy is on par with that of the Spanish Inquisition. The goals of the consolidation of power and neutralization of any and all competitors through the control of thinking itself and educational "titles" were of more significance than healing itself. The Flexner report effectively turned an entire field of study from a decentralized diverse array of modalities and practitioners into a cartel of one modality of medicine such that it could be centralized, commodified, codified and controlled by a small group of elite at it's core to raise prices and direct public opinion through fear.
