The Center for the History of Medicine invites you to learn more about the history of medicine and public health and engage with our collections in unique ways through rotating exhibits and special events.

Staff at the Center for the History of Medicine highlight collections through a program of exhibits, both physical and digital. Exhibits at the Countway are mounted in the lobby display area on the L2 level, the first floor, and the 5th floor Gallery of the Center of the History of Medicine. At present, Center exhibits can be visited by Harvard University ID holders only and only during the operating hours of the Countway Library of Medicine.

To view our online exhibits, visit our OnView Exhibits page.

The Center is also proud to host a wide array of special events and lectures throughout the year. For information on our upcoming events, please browse Countway's Events and Classes page or Exhibits and Events.
