Since 1970, the Society for the Social History of Medicine has been actively involved in the organization of specialised conferences and has facilitated research and debate within the discipline of the social history of medicine, with a particular emphasis on inter-disciplinary approaches.
The Society’s conferences are open to non-members. However, membership of the Society entitles conference delegates not only to reduced registration fees (there are some bursaries available for student and early career members without institutional support on request).
- Future SSHM events (including the biennial SSHM conference), past biennial conferences and SSHM event podcasts.
- Upcoming events and CFPs in the history of medicine.
- Conference funding for members.
- Bursaries for student and ECR members.
