The Center for the History of Medicine in the Francis A. Countway Library of Medicine is one of the world's leading resources for the study of the history of health and medicine. Our rare books, manuscript and archival collections, artifacts, and audiovisual materials attract a global audience of researchers.
The Center serves to enable the history of medicine to inform contemporary medicine and deepens our understanding of the society in which medicine is embedded.
