International Collaborations

As part of our mission to expand the field of medical humanities, we have instituted several collaborations with twin institutes and research centres in Europe and the United States.


Together, we work to advance the study of medical history and to make it accessible and useful to a dynamic, modern and ever-changing society.


The López Piñero Inter-University Institute is a research centre dedicated to research and dissemination of historical and social studies on medicine, technology, science and the environment. The Institute is located in the centre of Valencia, Spain, where the historical library and the scientific collection of the University of Valencia are housed, with permanent and temporary monographic exhibitions.

The Institute for the Preservation of Medical Traditions (IMPT) is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Los Angeles and Washington DC and devoted to fundamental research. It furthers the knowledge of ancient medicine, by encouraging, generating, and practicing collaborative work across a vast array of disciplines.

The Center for the History of Women Philosophers and Scientists (HWPS) – University of Paderborn furthers research on women philosophers and scientists throughout European history with a special focus on the Enlightenment and Phenomenology. It grants the Elisabeth of Bohemia Prize which is awarded to an internationally recognized philosopher for outstanding services to research on women in the history of philosophy.

The International History Students & Historians Group is a network of scholars which aims at promoting 3 main objectives: helping to protect world heritage, connecting students, professionals and history enthusiasts in all fields of history and making history accessible and free to everyone.
