Social Sciences and Medical Sociology

Medical sociology is the sociological analysis of therapeutic associations and organizations; the production of knowledge and selection of techniques, the activities and cooperation’s of health awareness experts, and the social impacts of medical practice. The field regularly cooperates with the sociology of knowledge, science and technology studies, and social epistemology. Medical sociologists are additionally keen on the subjective experiences of patients, often working at the boundaries of public health, social work, Psychology, demography and gerontology to explore phenomena at the intersection of the social and clinical sciences. Objective sociological research discoveries rapidly turn into a standardizing and political issue. The sociological approach to medicine is one of the biggest subsections of the whole field of sociology, and has become an important component of health care disciplines such as public health, health care management, clinical medicine and nursing. It involves a sociological analysis of medical organizations, the actions of healthcare professionals, and the social and cultural effects of medical practice. The field of medical sociology regularly interacts with knowledge, sociology of science and the technology studies. Medical sociologists are interested in the experiences of patients and are frequently found working at the fringes of public health, social work, gerontology and demography. Concepts such as medicalization have added to the broader understanding of social control and social order, while medicine recognizes sociology as an important discipline that is capable of making a great contribution to the application and understanding of health care.
