Teaching Medicine and Medical Ethics Using Popular Culture Paperback / softback
Edited by Evie Kendal, Basia Diug
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Science and Popular Culture series
This book demonstrates how popular culture can be successfully incorporated into medical and health science curriculums, capitalising on the opportunity fictional media presents to humanise case studies.
Studies show that the vast majority of medical and nursing students watch popular medical television dramas and comedies such as Grey's Anatomy, ER, House M.D. and Scrubs. This affords us with a unique opportunity to engage and inform not only students but the general public and patients further downstream.
This volume analyses examples of medical-themed popular culture and offers various strategies and methods for educators in this field to integrate this material into their teaching.
The result is a fascinating read and original resource for medical professionals and teachers alike.
