Event Type:  Lecture (This is an NIH Science event)
Title:  Debakey in Baghdad and Beirut: The Internationalization of Surgical Education, 1945-1970
Description:  The techniques of medical education in the fields of surgery underscore the universality of the medical profession and the internationalization of its pedagogies. This presentation examines the field of surgery in the medical schools of Baghdad and Beirut as comparative transnational microcosms for the study of the development of pedagogical approaches of surgical education. Pointedly, this presentation focuses on Dr. Michael Elias Debakey’s centrality in this internationalization process. In the aftermath of World War Two, DeBakey became vernacularized in surgical canon. Medical students in the Middle East studied Debakey’s techniques and the intricacies of his inventions while instructors employed his pedagogies. In examining Debakey’s influence on curricular development in the Middle East, the complexities and richness of cross-cultural exchange in the realm of medical education and the trajectory of the pedagogy of surgical education can help us understand the processes of the internationalization of the medical profession.
