My Presentation: The Fallacies in the Peer Review Process
Check out the PowerPoint Presentation I Put Together Outlining this Information
For those of you who may not know, I am a former participant in the allopathic healthcare system. After having my worldview transformed so drastically in the last few years, I decided to take my career down a different path, and I (once again) decided to go to school to be a holistic practitioner.
I know, I know… institutional indoctrination, blah, blah.
Keep in mind, that I too, have also criticized our learning institutions and I understand that they can come along with some pretty outlandish material. However, unlike 90% of the people in the healthcare profession, I am fortunate enough to think outside of their paradigms and ask the hard-hitting questions or dig deeper into the information and material that I am given. I am able to use better discernment and judgement that most of my peers due to the way that I have experienced healthcare in the last few years, and for that I am super grateful.
With that said, we were told to choose a research topic and given a bunch of guidelines to adhere to, including only utilizing ‘reputable resources’ to back up the claims of whatever topic we have selected. I decided to use their system against them, and I opted to write about the fallacies that are involved in the peer review process and expose the ‘reputable journals’ by using the guidelines and criteria I was given. I have a feeling my instructors were not too fond of my topic, but what can they do? I am still following directions and simultaneously exposing the fraud. Win/win for me!
