So let me start with a review here since no one has done yet at the time.

Jin is a manga made for people that enjoy some kind of historical conflicts.
What I mean by this is a surgeon travelling back in time accidentally (Edo period) and without a way to turn back.
He will have an impact in people's life in the past, using his skills as a surgeon to help save many lives and challenging every day difficulties of the past, for example: A deadly plague.
With the techology known from the future he is able to cure a disease that in the past was incurable.

Manga: Nobunaga no Chef
both involve the main character going back in time to the warring states period, and both have advanced future knowledge about a skill, in Nobunaga no Chef its cooking and in jin its medicine.

Manga: Gate: Jieitai Kanochi nite, Kaku Tatakaeri
Both series utilize and explore the concept of "introducing modern technologies to a more primitive culture", including the reactions and political developments that may be bought about as a result of said technologies.
While Gate focuses more on introducing modern idealologies and the technologies themselves to a 'swords-and-sorcery' setting, Jin focuses on practically applying modern knowledge in a more 'grounded' primitive historical setting.
Jin is more drama-focused than Gate, containing significantly less action, comedy and fan-service.

Manga: Black Jack
Both great medical dramas, Black Jack is the original medical manga while Jin contains an interesting time travel element. Both good reads :) 
reportRecommended by Hana-Lu
Manga: Asklepios
They are both about doctors practicing modern medicine during the middle ages/Edo time period. One doesn't explain the procedure being performed wrong 9 out of 10 times and wasn't cancelled after about 20 chapters though...

Manga: Kubikiri Asa
Both are fascinating in-depth views in to the medieval Japanese society during the Edo period. Both stories are also centered around a sensei character who uses his vast knowledge to understand the people around him to solve their problems.

Manga: Iryuu: Team Medical Dragon
