Managing Medical Authority: Doctors' Competitions over Status and Professional Knowledge

Daniel Menchik is an Assistant Professor in the Sociology Department at Michigan State University. His research focuses on medicine, science, work and occupations, with a particular emphasis on how academic physicians establish standards and how doctors make decisions about the knowledge they will use in everyday practice. His current project is a book manuscript on the relationship between medical knowledge and medical practices, and its link to the development, maintenance, and decay of authority.
