bshm - British society for the history of medicine

The British Society for the History of Medicine (BSHM) was established in 1965 with the aim of drawing together medical societies and organisations across the UK with an interest in medical history. The History of Medicine Society at The Royal Society of Medicine was one of the four original founding societies.

BSHM publish a short quarterly newsletter which is freely available from their website as well as a Blog. The Books Reviews section includes commentaries on the latest History of Medicine titles published.

BSHM also organises the BSHM Congresses which are a yearly UK event with lectures and the opportunity to introduce peer-reviewed papers. The Notice Board lists all UK events organised by BSHM affiliated members.
