Abstract

This PhD dissertation consisted of five studies that explored, through critical approaches, the motivations behind and unintended effects of global curricula in medical education with a focus on oncology. Through this work, the researchers have concluded that the Euro-American, Western perspective is heavily represented in global oncology curricula and that there is a focus on medical expertise underpinned by the biomedical model. The dissertation proposes that diversity plays a critical role in the development and implementation of global curricula and may be a mitigating factor in the challenges commonly seen with these curricula.
