Welcome to our Website

Founded in 1965, the BSHM 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 providing links between our affiliated societies, and by holding a prestigious lecture and a Congress on alternate years.
