The History of Medicine Division of the National Library of Medicine has launched its Online Syllabus Archive. The Archive aims to provide both an online syllabus exchange and an historical record of teaching in the history of medicine.

The National Library of Medicine's online syllabus archive collects college and university syllabi in the history of medicine, public health, the biomedical sciences, nursing, and related areas. It aims to offer a selection of current approaches to teaching in these subjects, from prehistory to the present, and in all parts of the globe.

The archive is intended both as a historical record of teaching in the history of medicine and as an online syllabus exchange for college and university educators. Educators are welcome to use this archive in developing their teaching, and we encourage you to send us any syllabi that you may devise using this collection. Feedback is always welcome, as are new syllabi and updates of old ones.

As anyone who uses the web knows, websites come and websites go. Sometimes a hyperlink works, and sometimes it does not. For this reason, all the syllabi collected here are stored on an internal NLM server.

At this stage, syllabi are only available in PDF format. In the future, html versions of all syllabi and a search engine that will allow keyword searching will be added.
