Flu, World War battlefield surgery, the pioneering anatomist Andreas Vesalius, and a house of murder are among the free seminars in the 17th year of the Edinburgh History of Medicine Group.

We invite you to come along to the talks, which are being held at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh and the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, and are promoted by the two colleges and the University of Edinburgh.

The first talk, on the 1st October, is on ‘The great influenza’ of 1918-20: A plague of compassion.

This year we have entered the modern age and are experimenting with a booking system. We hope everybody who turns up on the day will be able to get in, but to guarantee admission we recommend you book a ticket in advance.
