Abstract

NUNES, Everardo Duarte. Straus: the two medical sociologies. Rev. Saúde Pública [online]. 2007, vol.41, n.3, pp. 467-471. ISSN 0034-8910.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0034-89102006005000028.

Robert Straus' pioneer work, "The nature and status of Medical Sociology," written in 1957, was reviewed. Straus, one of the founders of medical sociology, made major contributions to this field and created the first department of behavior sciences in a medical school. In the work reviewed, Straus establishes the differences between sociology in medicine and medical sociology. Comments are made on the current perspective of medical sociology and about the author.

Keywords : Sociology, medical [history]; Sociology [medical, trends]; Social medicine [history]; Social medicine [trends]; Straus.
