Scholars and students interested in interdisciplinary approaches to medical discourse, as well as the generally curious, may want to check out this website created by McMaster University in Ontario, Canada. This research portal offers visitors links to a variety of resources related to the History of Medicine and Medical Humanities, with the aim of "gather[ing] resources in medical humanities for students, scholars, physicians, and the general public for learning, exploration, and research." For example, in the menu on the right side, readers will find numerous History of Medicine Digital Exhibits as well as Medical Humanities & Medical History Blogs. First-time visitors may want to begin by reading the How to Use this Website page before exploring its myriad resources. This still-evolving research portal was created in 2016 by its principal investigator Ellen Amster, the Jason A. Hannah Chair in the history of medicine and an associate professor in the departments of Family Medicine and History, along with a number of graduate student researchers. In the future, this project plans to add six thematic learning modules on topics such as the History of Health Professions and Arts, Literature, and Ethics as they pertain to medicine.
