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 special history of medicine event and a Congress on alternate years.
It’s now time to plan for the BSHM Congress 13th-16th September 2017 – Click here
