Abstract

Feminist principles are rare in medical education and in the practice of medicine. The authors are feminist family therapists and feminist health communication scholars who are faculty in a department of family medicine. In this paper, they present their use of a feminist perspective and feminist methods in their teaching of family physicians in training. The use of a live supervision practicum, imported from marriage and family therapy training, is described as an example of how feminist family therapists can bring a much-needed but rarely taught perspective to medical education. This perspective represents a paradigm shift away from the traditional model in medicine, one that is based on objectivity and separateness, to a more empathic and connected stance which shifts power in the physician-patient relationship.
