Abstract: How is the medical profession regulated in a ‘risk society’. This is the core question of my book "Medical Regulation, Fitness to Practice and Revalidation: A Critical Introduction (Policy Press, 2015)".The book focuses on how practitioners are judged to be fit, or not, to practice, in the context of both transformations of the profession and high profile scandals. In this podcast interview concerning my book, I explore both the history of the medical profession as well as recent attempts to regulate and manage medicine’s relationship with society. In doing so I bring together an analysis of the impact of new modes of regulation, particularly in terms of numbers of doctors sanctioned for poor practice, with theories of the professions and risk society. Focused on the UK, the podcast discusses how the book has important global implications and is essential reading for anyone interested in contemporary medical practice, as well as those working on professions, risk and sociology more generally.
