Home Medical Historical Library Research Bibliography of Yale Medical History

Bibliography of Yale Medical History

This bibliography was prepared from entries in PubMED, History of Science, Technology, and Medicine, and from other articles that have come to the attention of the compiler. The current listing no doubt has many important omissions. Part I lists a few basic sources on the history of the medical, nursing, and public health schools. Part II contains published obituaries or other biographical information on individuals, most of whom were Yale faculty members. With a few exceptions, articles on the careers of Yale medical graduates whose careers were elsewhere are out of scope for this bibliography unless the books or articles contain significant information about their Yale experience. Part III, arranged by author, contains other types of articles including some department histories. Suggestions of additional articles are very welcome.
