Medical Heritage Events

Each year the Heritage Team delivers a series of medical heritage events to showcase some of our incredible medical history collections, and explore the history of medicine in Glasgow and beyond!

The Medical Heritage Events programme features a range of fascinating talks, interactive workshops, and engaging open afternoons.

Our Spring/Summer programme runs between January and June, and the Autumn/Winter programme runs between September and December.

The Heritage team at the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow are delighted to introduce our programme of events for February to June 2022. Over the next six months, we will explore some of our incredible medical history collections through both hybrid and in-person talks and workshops, and would like to invite you all along for the ride!

The 2022 Spring/Summer programme has now concluded. Our Medical Heritage events series will resume in September. Stay tuned for details about our upcoming programme!
