The student-run journal for the history of medicine.

Historia Medicinae (HM) is a 2008-founded, student-run, and peer-reviewed online journal dedicated to promoting the study of the history of medicine.  The journal welcomes students and junior faculty of all fields (e.g., history, medicine, social sciences, law) to submit their work for online publication.  Our mission is to publish articles that cover unique topics in the history of medicine from innovative and informed perspectives.  The journal covers all periods of medical history from classical and ancient medicine to historical developments in modern medicine.  It consists of short letters written on important individuals, inventions, and developments in medicine as well as longer analyses pertaining to the history of medicine.
