Social Medicine is a field of medicine that seeks to implement social care of the patient through understanding how social and economic conditions impact health, disease and the practice of medicine. It also fosters conditions in which this understanding can lead to a healthier society. All practitioners in all fields of medicine need this educational series to help better the care of the patients that they see in everyday practice.
