The Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine is convened annually for the presentation of research by young scholars working on the history of medicine and public health. The meeting was founded in 2002 to foster an intercollegial intellectual community and provide a forum for sharing and critiquing graduate student research.

The Institute for the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins University is pleased to host the 15th Joint Atlantic Seminar for the History of Medicine on October 13-14th in Baltimore.
