A physician, and chair of an “anti-racist” organization, claims the University of Florida is discriminating against white people by offering a scholarship to minorities who have been historically marginalized and underrepresented in the medical field.

Stanley Goldfarb, chair of the antiracist organization Do No Harm, has filed complaints with the U.S. Department of Education accusing UF’s school of medicine and four other universities of violating the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination based on a person’s race, color, gender or national origin.

The other schools are the University of Minnesota Medical School, University of Tulsa-Oklahoma School of Community Medicine, University of Utah School of Medicine and the Medical College of Wisconsin.

Goldfarb targeted UF’s Underrepresented in Medicine (URiM) Visiting Student Program, a four-week scholarship for fourth-year students who are interested in completing an externship in emergency medicine.
