dc.description.abstractDisgust is a part of medical education. Whether in the anatomy lab, the operating room, or the hospital wards, medical school is often the first time that future doctors see human suffering manifested in bodies that elicit embarrassment, disgust and fear. Over the course of training, seeing such bodies goes from exceptional to commonplace as doctors learn to witness and empathize with suffering without becoming overwhelmed by it. In this thesis, I examine students’ first encounters with abject bodies in the anatomy lab, their later encounters with such bodies in their clinical years, and the educational programming shapes students’ gaze towards these bodies as they develop from laypeople into professionals. I argue that while medical humanities curricula implemented into gross anatomy help students manage challenging personal feelings elicited by the corpse, taboos and silences during the clinical years prevent students from thinking deeply about how patients experience having bodies that elicit disgust. The dearth of reflection on feelings of disgust during clinical training leaves doctors in training ill-equipped to promote and maintain patient dignity during medical care, particularly at the end of life.
