The history of medicine is a subject alive with twists and turns, marked by useful serendipity, unexpected insights and incrementally developed by clever people with intellectual and practical skills.

The AMHS has consistently told many stories of medicine and surgery, and stimulated the minds of our loyal audiences. 

50th Year Celebrations of  Medical History in Auckland is the story of how the Auckland Medical History Society was started in 1964 to discuss this fascinating subject. The book includes a brief summary of the history, the people involved, photographs and the lecture topics and presenters.
