About the Japanese Society for the History of Medicine

The Japanese Society for the History of Medicine (JSMH) was established in 1927 (Shōwa 2) for the promotion of research and the spread of knowledge about the history of medicine. The Society is placed as the first of the member societies of the Japanese Association of Medical Sciences (JAMS).


The history of medicine considers the various fields and aspects of medicine in a broad sense, in addition to the study of modern medical science. It encompasses modern medical science and related fields such as dental science, nursing science and pharmacy, the practice of medicine with its social and cultural relationships, the achievements of individuals in medical history, and other aspects as parts of the natural and biological sciences. Furthermore, the history of traditional Chinese medicine, Kampō, is one of the important topics in the Japanese history of medicine.


The Society holds annual and monthly meetings, publishes the official journal NIHON ISHIGAKU ZASSHI - JOURNAL OF THE JAPANESE SOCIETY FOR THE HISTORY OF MEDICINE , grants awards for outstanding research and publications, praises prominent individuals in the history of medicine, and cooperates with local, national, and international organizations having similar purposes to attain the above objectives.
