Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society

Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society

Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society (known informally as the Med Chi) is a society for medical practitioners in the North East of Scotland.

It was founded in Aberdeen in 1789 by James McGrigor and James Robertson, originally as a society of medical students, unhappy with teaching at the city's two universities (King's College and Marischal College). In 1811 it evolved into a postgraduate society.
