The article primarily analyses factors which stimulated the development of medical sociology in Eastern Europe and presents both the differences and similarities in countries of the Eastern block. The dominant political ideology and its changes which took place between 1965 and 1990, constitute a general context of considerations. Among other analysed factors is the strength and tradition of local sociologies in particular countries as well as specific demands constrained by medicine. The article further presents the main theoretical inspirations and research problems undertaken by medical sociology in Poland, where the accomplishments of this discipline are relatively high.
