The Journal of The History of Medicine and Allied Sciences

by Robert Craig

A copy of Volume 1, Number 1 of the JHMAS is part of the Marks Hirschfeld Museum of History collection. This journal was first published in January 1946 by Henry Schuman in New York. It has been published continuously since that date, the most recent being Volume 75 April 2020. This will be the last printed edition because after this issue the journal will only be available online through the Oxford University Press. The journal publishes brief, previously unpublished papers relating to all aspects of the history of medicine and of the various sciences impinging on it. These criteria have been maintained throughout the journal’s lifetime. An item from the journal stimulated to write a piece  about medical education.
