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.

Our mission is to enable the history of medicine and public health to inform healthcare, the health sciences, and the societies in which they are embedded.
