Des médecins élus locaux en Aquitaine

Abstract : This thesis study the relations between medical world and local political life. With the results of the local elections between 1959 and 1989, it tries to show that the research of a general pattern is not available. Physicians identities in the context of local election come from a double process of differenciation. The professional status give to each physician the symbolic power of the profession. The professional role eases the knowledge of the personality. But the elective identity construction has to deal with political realities. When physicians want to reach several elective positions, they have to find an agreement between their individual perspective and the collective frame of the political life.
Their investment in the public institutions life may be read according differenciation and no differenciation.
Some of them are involved in specialized institutional sector like helthe and social policies. In this case, we can say that thre is the continuity between the professional habitus and the local institutional frame. Others occupy positions which need perspective and knowledge-ability quite different. It's why physicians local representant may be more representan than medicals.
