AMS is a charitable organization with more than eighty years of funding History of Medicine initiatives such as grants, fellowships, studentships and the prestigious Hannah Chairs at 8 Schools of Medicine in Canada.
The History of Medicine and Healthcare Program, launched by AMS in 2015, was developed to promote scholarship, teaching and public interest in history of health care, disease and medicine. In 2018, AMS will increase our commitment to this program with the creation of the AMS Doctoral Completion Awards. Two awards of 25,000 each will be awarded annually with the purpose of supporting full-time dissertation writing leading to dissertation completion for a doctoral student in the humanities or social sciences, writing on a history of medicine/healthcare topic. The Doctoral Completion Grant will be awarded in addition to the current Project Grants and Postdoctoral Fellowships administered by the Nova Scotia Health Research Foundation.
