The Society for Ancient Medicine

The Society for Ancient Medicine fosters the scholarly study of ancient medicine broadly understood: not only Greek and Roman medicine, but also ancient Near Eastern, medieval European, Arabic, Armenian, and traditional Indian medicine, and indeed medicine from all pre-modern cultures. Membership in the society is open to all persons interested in ancient medicine; for further information, e-mail or write to the Society's president.

Medicina Antiqua is affiliated with S.A.M. and serves as an on-line resource for its members.
