The relationship between social work and medical sociology is analyzed, utilizing case studies of an academic institution, Harvard University, and a private foundation, the Russell Sage Foundation.

Why this change occurred, and its implications for social work and the behavioral sciences in medical education is the central theme of this discussion.
