Medical Sociology and Medical Anthropology

Medical anthropology is the study of how health and illness are shaped, experienced, and understood in light of global, historical, and political forces. It is one of the most exciting subfields of anthropology and has increasingly clear relevance for students and professionals interested in the complexity of disease states, diagnostic categories, and what comes to count as pathology or health. Medical Anthropology research mainly focus in the fields of the development of systems of medical knowledge and medical care, the patient-physician relationship, the integration of alternative medical systems in culturally diverse environments, the interaction of social, environmental and biological factors which influence health and illness both in the individual and the community as a whole, the critical analysis of interaction between psychiatric services and migrant populations and the impact of biomedicine and biomedical technologies in non-Western settings.
