dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to examine the patriarchal undertones and overt sexism that informs and takes place within undergraduate medical education (medical school). Using a feminist analysis, I will expose some of the ways in which sexism occurs. This includes at the levels of who is given authority to teach medical students, the biomedical research we are using as our primary knowledge source, what material is chosen to be prioritized vs what is left out of the curriculum, how this material is taught and interpreted, and what the larger cultural and value system is that medical education is embedded in. I will demonstrate how the patriarchal values of masculinity, objectivity, heroism, competition, technicality/procedurality, objectivity, rationality, and so on pervade each of these levels, devalue femininity and non-biomedical sources of knowledge, exclude women, and cause harm to all trainees and future patients.
