Medical Sociology and Epidemiology

Medical Sociology draws on traditional sociological issues and contributes to them through reformulations of such basic concepts as social systems and institutions, professionalism, social movements and social change, and social interaction and negotiation. The field is concerned with basic social science research and its implications for public policy and practice. Medical Sociology and Epidemiology are interlinked with each other. Epidemiology is the study of the distribution and determinants of health-related events, and the application of this study to the control of diseases and other health problems.  It is the cornerstone of public health, and shapes policy decisions and evidence-based practice by identifying risk factors for disease and targets for preventive healthcare. Social epidemiology is the social distribution and social determinants of health, societal conditions affect health.
