Jean Bauhin (24 August 1511 – 23 January 1582) was a French physician. He was born in Amiens, France and died in Basel, Switzerland, where he had to relocate after converting to Protestantism.[1]

He was the physician to Jeanne d'Albret, Queen of Navarre.

He had three sons, two of whom were also physicians and notable botanists: Johann Bauhin (also known as Jean Bauhin, 1541–1613) and Gaspard Bauhin (Caspar Bauhin, 1560–1624).[2]
