from Christine Ruggere, Associate Director, Institute of the History of Medicine & Curator, Historical Collection at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine:
The Department of the History of Medicine of the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine is currently developing a set of online courses in the history of medicine in order to provide greater access to the study of that subject. Mapped out over time, the courses will also be part of a larger project creating an online certificate program and an online Masters' degree in the history of medicine. One of our main goals is to provide graduate-level teaching in the field to interested health care students/professionals and others who are otherwise unable to take a year or two away from their work to pursue a degree in person or who wish to take just a few courses at their own convenience. In order to have our degree programs certified by the state of Maryland, we are required to submit results from a survey indicating any interest in these programs. It is a very short, quick survey: http://www.johnshopkinssurveys.com/se.ashx?s=705E3F16491130AA.
