Not too long ago Brad Hart was tweeting about not being able to use his medical training because of his history in porn (he was an RN before he entered porn), someone mentioned that Sharon Mitchell quit porn and became a doctor.
Wait … what?
Did someone really just tell me and everyone else that Sharon Mitchell quit porn and became a doctor?
I can’t believe just how many people will believe anything they hear and I also can’t believe people believe the bullshit that others put out there without even checking the facts.
Fact: Sharon Mitchell may call herself a Doctor but she, in fact, is not. Here is what her official bio used to say ….
Dr. Sharon Mitchell received her PH.D. in Human Sexuality from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality in San Francisco. California. She completed her residency in Los Angeles, California at the AIM Healthcare Foundation.
The problem with that is that the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality is not an accredited university.
In 2015 they were notified that they needed to work to seek accreditation to stay open. They did not. In 2016 the California Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education notified the school that they had 7 violations.
Quackwatch identifies the Institute as a “Questionable Organization” and keep in mind, in some states, it can be illegal to use a degree from an institution that is not accredited by a nationally recognized accrediting agency unless approved by the state licensing agency.
In Texas, for example, they consider most degrees from not accredited schools as either fraudulent or substandard degree and trying to pass off such a degree is a violation of the law.
Next, let’s talk about the issue of residency. In her official bio, she claimed, “She completed her residency in Los Angeles, California at the AIM Healthcare Foundation.”
While that may sound legit, it’s not possible.
Residents are those who have graduated from an accredited medical school and hold a medical degree (MD, DO, MBBS, MBChB).
By her own admission, she does not have a degree of M.D., D.O., or MBBS, MBChB, or BMed and what she did have wasn’t from an accredited medical school.
So again I beg of you to remember, just because someone tells you something, doesn’t make it true.
Sharon Mitchell is not a doctor nor has she ever been.
Stop believing the bullshit that people feed you online without first looking into said bullshit and verify it for yourself.
I’m not trying to be mean and just pick on Sharon Mitchell. I mean to apply this to everyone and everything you hear online.
You’d be surprised how many times I’ve heard people talk about their “ivy league” education or how they went to film school or any other crazy stuff.
I think Rick said it best (from Rick and Morty) – “They are the writers of their own press releases”.
Now you guys stop believing the bullshit.
