Sheffield Medico-Chirurgical Society
Founded 1841

The Sheffield Medico-Chirurgical Society is a forum for all branches of the medical and dental professions.

For over 165 years, it has been a major focus of post-graduate activity in Sheffield and the surrounding area.
It is a part of our professional heritage and its chief virtue is that it cuts across all departmental boundaries and is an unrivalled meeting place for all members of the profession.


To cultivate and promote Medicine, Surgery and all the branches of associated science.

To foster personal and professional relations among members of the profession in and around Sheffield


Meetings are held twice a month on alternate Thursdays from October to March. Lectures cover a wide diversity of topics designed to be of interest to all the membership. The topics are chosen from suggestions made by members.

Each meeting is followed by a buffet meal with a glass of wine providing an opportunity to mix with colleagues from other disciplines in a relaxed atmosphere.

The venue is usually a lecture theatre in the Royal Hallamshire Hospital.

There is a 'Registrars Evening' each year with short presentations from 3 registrars

Eponymous lectures are also held from time to time.

The Annual Dinner is held in March.

Most of the meetings have approval for CME and PGEA points.
