Dear all,

I am delighted to announce the launch of MedHist events – a service which publicises details of forthcoming history of medicine conferences, workshops and seminars. MedHist events is available via the MedHist Web site, at:

The listings are separated into two parts: the first details events aimed at professional historians of medicine, and the second, events aimed at a more generalist audience.

The listings contain event details, including event title, location and description, details of charging policy and a link to the event’s Web site, if one exists.

The listings have been compiled from a variety of sources, including history of medicine journals and email discussion lists.

We aim to make the events listing as comprehensive as possible. If you are holding a history of medicine event, and would like to publicise it, please let us know the details by emailing us at [email protected], providing brief details of the event and contact details. MedHist is a gateway to evaluated, quality Internet resources relating to the history of medicine and allied sciences, covering all aspects of the history of health and development of medical knowledge. If you would like more information about MedHist and some promotional flyers, please contact the MedHist editor at: [email protected].
