Intercultural Qualitative Research and Ph.D. Students
Ditton, Mary
Intercultural Education, v18 n1 p41-52 Mar 2007
The educational environment for postgraduate health professionals from developing countries in contemporary western universities is an intermediate zone between home and host culture. In this zone, knowledge is shaped through the development of concepts within the limitations of (often) pre-fluent language capacity. It is characterized by the mutual exchange of knowledge between western teachers and their developing-country students, who will return home to leadership roles working with marginalized individuals, communities and populations. This qualitative research aims to improve health education for global health professionals from developing countries, and in so doing it illustrates many of the difficulties and benefits involved in intercultural qualitative research for Ph.D. students.
