Aspirations of Leadership in Contemporary Global Health Education

Type: Seminar
Department: Hannah History of Medicine Unit (Faculty of Health Sciences)
Location: MDCL 3020

Description:

Global health training programs have grown exponentially in North American universities over the past two decades, but little is known about how the pedagogy and content of these programs is being developed.  Based on ethnographic research in the first Masters in Global Health Sciences program in the United States, Minn examines the influence of business and managerial sciences on global health education.  In particular, he examines the concept of leadership as an aspirational quality with diverging definitions, and discusses the eventual consequences of leadership-focused training programs on health interventions in impoverished settings.

Speakers:

Dr. Pierre Minn, Assistant Professor in the Department of Anthropology at the Université de Montreal.

Who Should Attend:

All interested students, faculty and staff- all are welcome!


Registration:

Not required.
