This inspirational new text covers the basic principles of the sociology of health and illness in an eminently readable way. By creatively employing the fictitious character of Frank Bennet, a new medical student, who cannot understand why he has to attend so many sessions in sociology in order to become a doctor, the book examines the most commonly covered topics, brings together the basic principles and research findings for each topic and then presents the stories in such a way as to fit the current literature. It investigates the relevance of sociology and considers a new direction - one that nurtures and explores, making the topic more realistic, useful and memorable. It brings sociology to life and presents a highly practical approach to the complexity of social reality in healthcare, offering enlightening new ways for students, teachers and healthcare professionals to engage in the sociology of health and illness. 'This book bridges the gap between theoretical sociology and medical education, and presents us with a blueprint on how to teach medical sociology within modern, problem-based learning (PBL) medical education. It also contributes to the way we teach a new generation of students - how to understand patients in context, how to treat them with respect and, ultimately, how to be a better medical doctor.' Andrea Stockl in her Foreword
