History of Science and Medicine Fellowship
Each year the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine in collaboration with the Linda Hall Library of Science and Technology offers a History of Science and Medicine Fellowship. The fellowship supports doctoral students whose research examines the intersecting histories of the biological and physical sciences, engineering, clinical medicine, and public health. The History of Science and Medicine fellow will spend one month in Kansas City during the 2021-22 academic year conducting research at both institutions.
The collections at the University of Kansas Medical Center (KUMC) fall within the administration of the Department of History and Philosophy of Medicine and include the Clendening History of Medicine Library, which houses an extensive collection of Western European medical books from the 15th century to the present. In addition, the KUMC Archives contains an array of institutional and hospital records as well as unique collections in the history of surgery and anesthesia.
