Medical Missions: First Do No Harm?

Dr. Lawrence Loh explores whether medical missions cause more harm than good to the communities they serve.
  • Overview

    Almost two-thirds of medical students expect to join a medical mission during medical school and their medical early careers. Yet despite positive intent, such short-term experiences may exacerbate global health inequities and even cause harm.

    Dr. Lawrence Loh, Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto Dalla Lana School of Public Health, joins host Dr. Andrew Wilner to talk about the benefits and pitfalls of medical mission work for the communities being served.
