A new medical school in the US that is unapologetically pro-life is scheduled to open in 2026.
The key figure behind the undertaking is anesthesiologist Dr. George Mychaskiw. The model he has devised means that an already established university campus will host the pro-life school without officially running it. The campus where the medical school will be situated is Benedictine College in Atchison, Kansas.
In a recent interview, Dr Mychaskiw explains how the plan came to fruition. He said: “I developed a model for a private, independent, separately funded, accredited and governed medical school to reside on a host college campus, so that the medical school could enjoy the student life and academic advantages of a large university and the university could have a medical school on its campus, without the tremendous expense and development complexities.”
In the same interview, he shared the vision for the pro-life school of medicine: “This medical school will stand for the life and dignity of each and every human being… from conception until natural death… These physicians will take back the culture of death and set things right in our very broken health care system and serve as a model for other physicians and medical schools to do what is right, rather than what is popular.”
It is very encouraging to see a project like this underway. It’s something that hopefully at some point in the not too distant future will also happen in Ireland!
