The Letterman Institute is the leading interpretive center of the innovations of Dr. Jonathan Letterman, and his contemporaries and successors in the fields of management, managerial organization & logistics, medical law of armed conflict, humanitarian assistance and medicine.
The Letterman Institute is dedicated to advancing the stories of Civil War medicine in order to improve TODAY’s medical and managerial outcomes for all stake holders. The Institute will accomplish this by:
- Developing programs and publications based on historical models, case studies and scholarship that address those core competencies recognized by medical, governmental, military and private institutions as essential for sound organizational management and service delivery.
- Demonstrating the relevance of historical perspective to modern challenges.
- Enhancing and preserving the mission of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
Historic models are used as the basis of our training. This program is geared to those who may have little or no knowledge or interest in history.
The stories of human achievement, medical and managerial advancements and inspired leadership transcend history and remain relevant and powerful today.
Interactive discussions allow us to bring participants a high degree of relevance to their daily tasks and duties.

We are made wise not by the recollection of our past, but by the responsibility for our future.
