Welcome to The Medico-Chirurgical Society of Edinburgh
Based on the successful Medico-Chirurgical Society of London, The Medico-Chirurgical Society of Edinburgh was founded in 1821 by our first president, Dr Andrew Duncan. In the beginning, the main object of the Society was “communication of facts and the interchange of opinions on medical subjects and the collection and preservation of important practical observations so frequently made by gentleman whose avocations do not permit them to undertake separate publications”.
Today, the society has an important social function for hospital doctors, general practitioners and their partners. All consultants and general practitioners are encouraged to join.
