Abstract

Summary. This paper reports association within a curriculum of a theoretical programme in medical sociology for undergraduate medical students with a practical family attachment. These two components constitute the ‘sociology’ element of a course in behavioural science, and have equal weight for assessment purposes. Recognition of, on one hand, the mutuality of the two elements, and on the other, their similar but distinct theoretical underpinnings, suggests that such an association has the benefit of retaining the individual contributions of each component to student learning, while enabling theoretical and practical components to inform each other. Both are administered from the Department of General Practice of the University of Sheffield, UK. The consequences of such an educational provision are discussed. 1991 Blackwell Publishing
