Three ordinary meetings are held each year. These take place on Saturdays with the autumn meeting in Edinburgh, the spring meeting in Glasgow and the summer meeting at a chosen venue elsewhere in Scotland. In addition an annual lecture and dinner in honour of Dr Haldane Tait, a former President and long-serving Secretary to the Society, is held in the summer, usually in Edinburgh.
Meetings are social as well as academic events starting with lunch followed by two or more papers on various aspects of medical history. Guests are very welcome.
