Description - Lecture Notes: The Social Basis of Medicine by Andrew Russell

Following the GMC?s call for greater social and behavioural

useful not only for undergraduate medical students, but also for
recently graduated and practising doctors who wish to have a
greater understanding of, and to develop their skills in, this
