    This thesis aims to undertake an economic analysis of private medical practice while stressing on elements, which in our view, remain unsaid or unrecognised. It is about an institutional analysis, based on the historic and social embedding of the health. After presenting the specificities of health economics and a history, we will deal with the institutions of private medical practice. The essential features of « supply » are introduced by stressing upon the drawbacks of private medical practice concerning the opportunistic behaviour of private practitioners and the deficiencies in regulation, without ignoring the fact that it is a profession that is suffering and needs recognition. As far as « demand » is concerned, we will stress upon the state of sickness in the economic analysis. Finally, after underlining the problems linked with private medical practice, we will outline proposals with a perspective of developing primary health care. The conclusion will treat the utility factory of private medical practice and its future, based upon its capability to reform itself.
