Theme Issues
Founded in 1984, the Canadian Bulletin for Medical History is the leading national journal for the history of medicine, health, and related fields. Its aim is to situate the history of health, medicine, and biomedical science within local, regional, and international contexts. We publish high quality, original, refereed articles, with a coverage of all periods and aspects of medical history, both Canadian and international. Like our sponsor, the Canadian Society for the History of Medicine, the CBMH has a proud and longstanding tradition of bilingualism. We publish articles and reviews in French and English, and all abstracts are translated into both languages.
