Treating and preventing disease has always been one of the most important tasks in a society, and that task ultimately falls to one of the most respected and admired figures in any culture—the healer. This respect is understandable —medical practictioners ease pain, prolong life, and prevent disesase, making them among the most important figures in the daily lives of people everywhere. The Dictionary of Medical Biography provides authoritative biographical coverage of major medical practitioners in all times and cultures. While its emphasis is on practitioners within the Western medical tradition, it also covers practitioners of alternative medicines, as well as major figures within traditional Chinese, Indian, and Islamic medicine. In addition, special essays survey these medical traditions, which are more difficult to appreciate within a biographical framework. Overall, the Dictionary of Medical Biography concentrates on the nuances of medical practice, and the social context within which ideas of health, disease, and therapy exist.

The most complete work of its kind, the Dictionary of Medical Biography is essential for any library that serves those who seek to understand the importance of medicine in the lives of people everywhere.


At almost 1.25 million words, the Dictionary of Medical Biography provides a comprehensive biographical dictionary of medicine: Almost 1100 entries on almost every important figure in medicine who ever lived, written by the leading scholars in the field.

Almost 400 scholars, researchers, and physicians contributed to the work, including many leaders in their medical fields.

Extensive overview essays on the important medical traditions of the world—e.g. Chinese, Indian, Islamic.

Over 300 images that depict medical practictioners and medical practices from around the world.

Bibliographies that provide students and researchers the next step in learning about these individuals and their work.
