The Quandary of the Sacred Vagina: Medical Education in a New Era
The pelvic exam is a fascinating case for understanding medical socialization today, as it involves a two-pronged navigation of feelings. It is about the emotions of physician and patient, but it is also about the embodied experience of sensation for both. The GTA program today has been shaped as well by the legacy of feminist health activism and the science-driven reform efforts of medical educators. While it is surely an exceptional experience—one or several one-to-three-hour workshops during all of medical school—it is embedded in and demonstrative of larger trends in medical education and, indeed, the medical profession.
