Administrative history

The Dundee Medical Society was formed in 1864. The object of the society was to receive communications on medicine and surgery and to hold meetings to converse on medical topics, to provide the members with the means of procuring books and periodicals and to promote professional improvement by any other means. The society lapsed c.1871, and was reconstituted in 1882 as the Dundee Medical Club. The primary purpose of this body was to provide opportunities for practitioners to socialise.
