Medical Sociology (MedSoc) Study Group 


The BSA MedSoc Group promotes scholarship and communication in the field of the sociology of health and illness in the UK.  The group is one of the largest and most active study groups of the BSA.

Group Membership

Membership is constituted by adding your details to the e-mail circulation list.



BSA Membership brings benefits in terms of reduced conference fees and journal subscriptions, but most group activities are open to non-members.

The group hosts its
annual conference each September, which attracts in the region of 350 delegates, and awards a number of prizes each year.

Other group activities are organised under the auspices of the regional groups, which organise regular meetings in different areas of the UK. The MedSoc Committee is keen to support the establishment of new regional groups in under served areas and any interested parties should contact the Convenors.
