SOC 210 - Sociology of Medicine


Credits: (3)
This course looks at medicine as both an impressive human achievement and as an arena for conflict and inequality. Topics include: the experience of being ill; the origins and current state of the U.S. health care sector; the training and perspectives of health care providers; the tough decisions that have to be made in the space between technology and human dignity; the meanings of different illnesses; issues of fairness in health care; and the “medicalization” of society.
