St. Bartholomew's and the Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry.
History of Medicine Society.

The History of Medicine society has been running successfully now for two years. Despite a late start we've managed to get the website up to date; and under the auspices of the new Captain, Tom Webb, we have another set of fine lectures to pique your interests, and expand your historical horizons.

The meetings are held fortnightly. Guests are invited to come and speak on various subjects; we try to keep the meetings informal, with time for questions afterwards .
All meetings are at 7.00pm on Tuesdays, in the Anatomy Lecture Theatre (Old Medical College Building, Whitechapel) and last about one hour.


Timetable for the coming months.

Tuesday 10th November - 'Dr. Langdon-Down' by Dr. Connor Ward

Tuesday 1st December - 'The Early History of English Surgery' - Professor John Blandey

Tuesday 8th December - 'Jack The Ripper' - Mr. Percy Nunn, Talk and walk ending in one of 'Saucy Jack's' pub haunts for a Christmas drink. Food and snacks will be available beforehand.


Next term we hope to have talks on Egyptian Mummies, William Hunter -the first successful 'man-midwife', Dr. Barnado from 'Barnado's', Medical Topography- explorations in the East End, and last but not least the History of Osteopathy.

All are welcome; you don't need to know anything about the History of Medicine, you just need a passing interest in History or Medicine.

If you have any questions or want to know more about the History of Medicine Society you can E-mail Tom.
