With the support of a £325,000 Wellcome Trust Enhancement Award, the Centre for the History of Medicine and Disease at the University of Durham and the medical historians at the University of Newcastle have formed a joint new centre for the history of medicine. The activities of the new centre comprise a co-ordinated research programme, a Masters training programme in the History of Medicine, a number of PhD projects, a series of seminars, workshops and conferences, teaching initiatives within the medical curriculum, and a series of public engagement activities.
