This course considers the social context of health, illness, disease and mortality.  A variety of social, cultural, historical, political and economic forces impacting health and illness are examined.  Topics include structural and cultural dimensions of health, health inequalities, the medical profession, the experience of illness, and the organization of healthcare.  Throughout the course we will apply sociological theory and recent research from the social sciences to analyze contemporary issues in medicine.
