Publications and Scholarship

The Medical Heritage Center provides an avenue and environment for scholars to publish works on topics of historical medical significance. The Center helps secure funding for publications, conducts hands-on research, provides opportunities for guest articles to appear in Center publications, and serves as a launching pad for newly published works.

Scholars-in-Residence Program

The Medical Heritage Center (MHC) established a Scholars-in-Residence program in 1998. The program allows a scholar to spend up to a year within the Medical Heritage Center to use its resources in order to research and publish in health sciences history.

Scholars are recruited and selected on an annual basis by members of the MHC Advisory Committee. Scholars can come from a variety of backgrounds and provide demonstrated need for the use of MHC collections. Program participants receive dedicated space within the Center and a stipend to complete their work.

Scholarly publications are supported and often sold by the Center. For more information about the Scholars-in-Residence program, including application details, please contact Judith Wiener.
