York Medical Society was founded in 1832 for “the purpose of promoting and diffusing medical knowledge”. Over the many years since, many distinguished doctors have been members and given lectures to the Society. The Society has its own rooms within a beautiful Grade II listed building in Stonegate in the heart of the City of York, and today provides a unique location for topical lectures, events, conferences and wedding receptions.
However we are still having to cope with considerable Covid-related disruption. 23 Stonegate remains closed for anything other than essential maintenance and the collection of wine from the cellars. Our talks are all still taking place but completely on-line now,...

message from our president - Prof barry wright
Welcome to our Society and Website! The meetings for our 190th session are detailed here, and I hope that you will be able to come to some, or perhaps all of them.
I trust that you will find an interesting mix of topics and speakers; covering, as they do, a range of subjects and bringing a wealth of expertise to the Society.
Our fortnightly meetings are relaxed, informative and fun.
