Institute of Medical Sociology

The Institute of Medical   Sociology at the MLU Halle-Wittenberg is a leading centre for research   and teaching in the field of medical sociology and social epidemiology   in Germany and provides an excellent research environment in the field   of Public Health.

The Institute combines research on the   description and explanation of social inequalities in health at   different stages of life and across the life course with comparative   research on child and adolescent health across countries and over time   as well as health services research. This knowledge is applied via undergraduate and graduate teaching.

The Institute of Medical   Sociology grew out of the former Section of Medical Sociology of the   Institute of Medical Epidemiology, Biometry and Informatics in March   2011 with the appointment of Prof. Dr. Matthias Richter.
