SOC480.2 Medical Sociology

The course will attempt to take a broader perspective than the straightforward sociological analysis of medical institutions. It will examine how the health and disease are socially constructed and managed. It will focus on social factors that determine the rates of disease, access to health care, types of health care, and overall social organization of medicine. It will finally apply the built framework to the analysis of the past and current situation with health and wellness in Turkey. (SOC 4015/SOC 4054)
