Welcome to the Archives

The Ulster Medical Society has long had an interest in the history of medicine in the North of Ireland. This section aims to provide access to much of what has already been published and, given time, to make available much as yet hidden in minute books and elsewhere.

General local medical histories have been written by Esler, Hunter and Strain. Esler's accounts were published in 1885 and 1886, Hunter's in 1934 and Strain's in 1967. These are available in pdf below.
