Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, and likely many others are currently under fire from the American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) for using their skills as doctors in the face of an unprecedented crisis.
The World Council for Health (WCH) stands with Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, and all doctors facing attacks and pressure for treating people, for speaking out, and for daring to ask questions.
According to Dr. McCullough, ABIM claims that he has provided “false and inaccurate information to patients.” Dr. Kory tweeted on Sunday that ABIM sent him a letter detailing public statements he made as “misinformation”.
The American Board of Internal Medicine is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, self-appointed organization that certifies physicians. While ABIM cannot revoke a physician’s license, the organization can decertify them which may have significant consequences on their ability to practice medicine.
The stated mission of ABIM is, “To enhance the quality of health care by certifying internists and subspecialists who demonstrate the knowledge, skills and attitudes essential for excellent patient care.” According to their website, to be certified by ABIM, doctors must demonstrate “that they have the clinical judgment, skills and attitudes essential for the delivery of excellent patient care.”
Doctors McCullough and Kory have repeatedly demonstrated the problem-solving skills and determined attitude that save lives, attributes that we should all desire in a healthcare provider. In fact, the two of them alone have not only enhanced patient care but also the care provided by the many healthcare providers educated and encouraged by their bravery.
Threatening the certification of this pair of brave doctors is the antithesis of the stated mission of the American Board of Internal Medicine. Instead, ABIM should question the judgement and skills of the many physicians in the U.S. that followed top-down orders originating from a long list of government officials, pharmaceutical companies, and hospital CEOs — none of which have ever treated someone suffering from Covid-19 — that have resulted in harm and even death.
The recent actions by ABIM and threats from other medical registration bodies leave us with the conclusion that these regulatory bodies and certification agencies are captured and no longer prioritize the patient.
The World Council for Health stands with Dr. Peter McCullough, Dr. Pierre Kory, and all doctors facing attacks and pressure for treating their patients, for speaking out, and for daring to ask questions. We must #LetDoctorsBeDoctors.
WCH also stands with the many doctors around the world that have been facing similar attacks for standing up for early treatment and shining a light on Covid corruption and vaccine injury, including Dr. Jackie Stone, a family physician fighting to retain her license in Zimbabwe.
