Here's a tip for searching for history of medicine articles in PubMed using limits. Enter your topic in the search box and then click on the Limits link above it. In the Subsets section, scroll down to History of Medicine and check the box next to it. Check any other limits that might apply. Then click search. You will see on the results screen that limits have been activiated. This subset was created by the National Library of Medicine to facilitate searching for history topics and should return more precise results.
NOTE: Always enter PubMed through the Libraries website so links to full text content will appear.
