Online CME Modules in the History of Medicine

The Department of the History of Medicine at Johns Hopkins is proud to introduce new online CME modules that provide a historical perspective on issues of relevance to clinical practice today. Our first module, which launched in January 2018, explores the social, political, and economic forces that continue to shape the dynamic boundaries of the medical profession. Medical professionalism is an ever-changing concept; in this CME, we explore its history in ancient, medieval, early modern, and modern medical practice.
