Welcome to the BSHM Website

Founded in 1965, the British Society for the History of Medicine is an umbrella organisation which brings together medical history societies and medical museums from all over the UK. Our aim is to promote the study of the history of medicine. We do this by promoting links between our affiliated societies, and by holding a prestigious lecture and a Congress on alternate years.

Edinburgh – Congress venue 2017

Dr Sam Alberti – Poynter lecturer 2016
