The department is organized to give instruction and opportunities for research in the history of medicine and kindred sciences, including the history of public health.
Students enrolled in the MD program in the School of Medicine can take courses in History of Medicine, choose History of Medicine for their Scholarly Concentration, and take electives centering on medical humanities and social medicine.
Students matriculated into the MD or graduate programs in the School of Medicine or graduate programs in the School of Public Health may apply to the 1-year MA in the History of Medicine.
History of Medicine courses specifically geared toward MD students include the Scholarly Concentration in the History of Medicine (1st and 2nd year students), a 4-week elective in Medical Humanities and Social Medicine (3rd and 4th year students, every January), and more flexible independent studies on a topic to be agreed upon with appropriate faculty member, throughout the year.
Each year a number of additional electives on varying topics is offered.
