Who funds the schools?
It was the Rockefeller Empire that set out to methodically seize control and direction of American education and particularly of that of American
medical education with the creation of the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, in 1901 and soon after with the Carnegie Foundation for the
Advancement of Teaching. (The Rockefeller and Carnegie foundations traditionally worked together as one entity to attain their mutual goals).
In 1910 came the Flexner report. (The Flexner brothers were the means by which the Rockefeller and the Carnegie fortunes came to prey on the
unsuspecting and vulnerable medical profession).
Abraham Flexner was on the staff of the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
When the Flexner report was released it gained vast exposure in the public domain. It actually did serve to correctly point out inadequacies in
medical education at the time and proposed a wide range of sweeping changes. However, these included a major focus on strengthening courses in
pharmacology and the addition of research departments at all "qualified" medical schools.
It was at this point that the Rockefeller-Carnegie partnership moved in with perfect timing and strategy. Rockefeller and Carnegie began to
immediately shower millions of dollars on those medical schools that were susceptible to control. Those that did not conform were denied the funds and
eventually were forced out of business by their well-funded competitors.
Many of those that were edged out had been sub-standard, but excellence was not the only measure for determining which ones would receive funding.
The primary test was the willingness of the school administration and faculty to accept a curriculum geared to drug research.
After Abraham Flexner completed his report, he became one of the three most influential men in American medicine. The other two were his brother, Dr.
Simon Flexner of the Rockefeller Institute and Dr. William Welch of Johns Hopkins Medical School and of the Rockefeller Institute.
These men were not only involved in the awarding of grants for the Rockefeller Foundation, but they were counselors to heads of medical institutions,
to lay board members, and to members of staff of medical schools and universities in the United States and abroad.
Substantial influence has also been exerted by the JP Morgan dynasty, the Ford Foundation, the Kellogg Foundation, the Commonwealth Fund (a
Rockefeller interest created by Edward Harkness of Standard Oil), the Sloan Foundation, and the Macy Foundation.
These foundations captured control of the of the medical education system when they were able to place their own people onto the boards of the various
schools and into key administrative positions. They were able to accomplish the same thing with the Association of American Medical Colleges which set
the criteria for the curricula, determines the criteria for selecting medical students, and for communication within the profession as well as to the
general public. Lastly, they were able to select the teachers themselves with a major portion of foundation activity always being directed toward what
is generally called "academic medicine." The Rockefeller Foundation boasts of over twenty-thousand fellowships /scholarships for the training of
This has resulted in loading the staffs of medical schools with men and women who, by preference and training, are ideal propagators of the
drug-oriented science that has come to dominate American medicine.
The terrible irony of it is that neither they nor their students are even remotely aware that they are products of a selection process geared to a
hidden commercial objective. This objective of course (among others) is to funnel as much wealth as possible into the major chemical companies (also
known as Big Pharma which they also control).
