The Royal Society of Medicine was established in 1805 and granted a Royal Charter by His Majesty King William IV in 1834. A Supplementary Charter was granted in 1907 by King Edward VII. The Royal Society of Medicine is one of the country’s major providers of postgraduate medical education. Independent and apolitical, the Society promotes an exchange of information and ideas on the science, practice and organisation of medicine.
The Royal Society of Medicine’s mission is to advance health, through education and innovation.
