Houston, Texas, is home to the largest medical center in the world, the Texas Medical Center. Our growing catalog of work in medical history includes large institutions, individual entities and biographical portraits of key individuals. Our professional historians have developed relationships with local medical history archivists and are familiar with many of the major collections including those at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, the Houston Academy of Medicine-Texas Medical Center Library, and the UTMB Moody Medical Library.
Traditionally perceived as both an art and a science, modern medicine also has evolved into both business and government program. Dazzling scientific advances often are confounded by bewildering bureaucratic regulations, and always with human beings caught up in the backwash. Medical history is an exciting field of study and the concept of change over time provides a multitude of opportunities for our team to explore the breathtaking advances of medical science, the evolution of medical institutions and the contributions of individuals striving to improve the human condition.
