H3689: Who’s Flexner and Why Does He Get a Say Medicine? : Images of Today’s Doctors & the Legacies of Medical Education Reform in the Progressive Era in Splash Spring 19 (Apr. 06, 2019)
Throughout the course of this lesson, I hope to inspire the students to consider how the modern media they consume shapes their perceptions of the medical system— specifically their racialized image of the doctor— and how these perceptions are connected to the histories of medical education’s reform during the Progressive Era. The lesson, which is divided into two main parts, focuses on both participants lived experiences as patients and consumers of media, as well as the 1910 Flexner Report. In the first half of the lesson, participants will analyze their own experiences through two main activities. The first of which is a simple drawing exercise where participants are asked to draw their own doctor, while the second is a gallery walk of images of television’s most famous doctors. In the second half of the lesson, participants will: 1) learn a brief history of Progressive Era, 2) learn a brief history of the evolution of medicine during the Progressive Era, 3) learn about Abraham Flexner, 4) closely analyze 1910 Flexner Report, and finally, 5) consider both the immediate and long-term consequences of the 1910 Flexner Report. Participants will learn this information in a myriad of ways including through lecture, close readings, video.
