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 special  history of medicine events  and a Congress on alternate years.

The Edinburgh Congress is now full to capacity for Thurs 14th and Fri 15th September.
Email us at bshm.congress@gmail.com if you would like to be put on a waiting list. Please include a phone number. We will notify you if any Congress places become available.
