Health Sociology Essay Assessment –
Task: Write an essay addressing the following topic: Sociology analyses the social determinants of health and utilises a number of concepts and theories in order to understand health and illness. Draw on two sociological theories to explain the social determinants of health and discuss how this differs from the medical model.
Preparation: Read widely prior to completing the essay. This includes all required readings but should move beyond these to include other sources.

Demonstrated understanding and application of appropriate sociological theories, concepts and perspectives
Critical reflection on the key ideas and concepts
Evidence of wide reading
Essay reads well and is clear and concise.
