This course explores sociological ways of thinking about health and medicine. Focusing on health institutions, people's experiences within the health system, and different ways of constructing health and illness, we will look at inequalities and health, mental health, disabilities, chronic illness, and complementary medicine, amongst other topics. Students will engage in a policy project and will gain a broad understanding of the Aotearoa New Zealand health scene. Students will also have an opportunity to think about health and illness in relation to their own lives.
