Welcome to York Medical Society
York Medical Society was founded in 1832 for "The purpose of promoting and diffusing medical knowledge". Over the many years since, many distinguished Doctors and Surgeons have been members and given lectures to the Society.
Each year a new President is elected who is responsible for the Programme of Meetings, both of a medical/scientific and latterly of more artistic nature together with a busy social calendar.
The Society distributes monies to chosen charities every year. The society also fosters close links with the Hull York Medical School.
The Society owns its own rooms within a beautiful Grade II listed building in the heart of the City of York. The priceless medical library has been moved and housed with The University of York for safe keeping.
Membership is in the region of 350 medically qualified personnel both in Hospital and General Practice. Retired professionals actively maintain contact with the Society. Both old and new members are cordially invited to our regular Friday evening meetings which are preceded by a reception in the library
Within 23 Stonegate and the York Medical Society's Rooms there is a large lecture theatre seating up to 60 people with modern projection facilities, a library and a dining room. An oak paneled room serves as a refectory.
The Society lets it facilities for conferences and business meetings and we have rental rates for short 2-3 hour sessions, half day or full day rental rates that include the supply of catering and presentation equipment.
