Founded in 1984, the Canadian Journal of Health History / Revue canadienne d’histoire de la santé (CJHH/RCHS), formerly Canadian Bulletin of Medical History / Bulletin canadien d’histoire de la médecine, 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 (CJHH/RCHS) 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.

Undergraduate, graduate, and medical students are invited to submit unpublished history of health and medicine essays. The winner will receive $500 and a year’s membership with the CSHM-SCHM, which includes a subscription to the CJHH.
Submit your essays by 15 May 2024.
