Abstract: The language of a science is related to the conceptual specificity of its subject matter, and this is why in the beginning of the paper the subject of medicine is considered as being based on the notions of health and illness. The theoretical system of medicine is defined as a scientific region, which accepts and consistently coordinates theoretical models from physics, chemistry, biology, and psychology, and thus the features of its language are explicated. The next part of the paper is dedicated to medical practice focused on the relationship between physician and patient.
Keywords: language and practice in medicine, health, disease, doctor-patient relationships, health policies
