History occurs in the MeSH vocabulary as both the MeSH heading HISTORY and as the subheading /history. Reserve the MeSH heading HISTORY for general articles on the concept of history or for history as a field or discipline. Use the subheading /history with a specific MeSH term to indicate an historical aspect of that term.

History as part of the undergraduate medical curriculum

HISTORY as an IM concept is very rare. The subheading /history is used much more frequently.

Specific historical time periods are treed under the general term HISTORY.
