Those who enter the medical profession do so for a number of reasons. Some do so for the prestige that comes with being a doctor while others join the profession for its pecuniary rewards. Many have an innate love for the practice of medicine and truly desire to dedicate their life’s work toward healing the sick. Often, it is a combination of all these factors.
There are of course, occasional genetic mutations within the human gene pool that produce insidious individuals whose motivations for entering the medical profession are nothing but malevolent. They are a rare breed but unfortunately, do exist. One such individual was Joseph Mengele, a Nazi doctor who conducted unfathomable brutal medical experiments on his unfortunate Jewish victims during the Holocaust.
Another such individual is the rabidly anti-Semitic Lara Kollab, a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, who graduated in 2018 and received her DO degree from Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine. Kollab’s social media history is replete with anti-Semitic canards and conspiracy theories.
