MEDICAL SOCIOLOGY

This course guide tells you briefly what to expect as you read this material. Medical Sociology may be divided into two separate but interrelated areas: sociology in medicine and sociology of medicine. Sociology in medicine is concerned with how sociology collaborates directly with the role of the physician and other health personnel in an attempt to study the social factors that are relevant to a particular health problem. This aspect of medical sociology is intended to be directly applicable to patient care or to the solving of a particular health problem. The sociology of medicine on the other hand, deals with such factors as the organization, role relationships, norms, values and beliefs of medical practice as a form of human behaviour. The emphasis is upon the social processes that occur in the medical setting and how these help our understanding of medical sociology in particular and social life generally.
