Nathan Smith Club
This club is the oldest and one of the best-kept secrets of the Yale School of Medicine. Established in 1924, the organization for medical students interested in the history of medicine was named for Dr. Nathan Smith (1762-1829), a New England physician who founded the Dartmouth Medical School before coming to New Haven to establish the medical department at Yale. The club is run by Yale medical students and meets several times a year to hear a fellow medical student present their research on some aspect of the history of medicine. These meetings are informal and typically take place at the home of a Yale medical faculty member.
Any medical student interested in the Nathan Smith Club is encouraged to contact the Section of the History of Medicine at 785-4338.
