The Handbook of the Sociology of Medical Education provides a
contemporary introduction to this classic area of sociology by
examining the social origin and implications of the
epistemological, organizational and demographic challenges facing
medical education in the twenty-first century. Beginning with
reflections on the historical and theoretical foundations of the
sociology of medical education, the collection then focuses on
current issues affecting medical students, the profession and the
faculty, before exploring medical education in different national
contexts. Leading sociologists analyze: the intersection of medical
education and social structures such as gender, ethnicity and
disability; the effect of changes in medical practice, such as the
emergence of evidence-based medicine, on medical education; and the
ongoing debates surrounding the form and content of medical
curricula. By examining applied problems within a framework which
draws from social theorists such as Pierre Bourdieu, this new
collection suggests future directions for the sociological study of
medical education and for medical education itself.
