Welcome to the Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society

The Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society was founded by students in 1789 and evolved into a postgraduate Medical Society in 1811. Today its membership is drawn from consultants and general practice principals, but all medical practitioners in the north-east of Scotland are most welcome.

Current activities include:

  • Monthly scientific meetings;
  • Funding bursaries for student electives;
  • Managing a library and archive of local material;
  • Regular social events.
