Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0748603905, Hardcover)A history of medical societies and the key role they played in the growth of the medical profession in Scotland, this book describes how medical societies raised standards in 19th century public health by providing free vaccination services, aiding the education and certification of local midwives and campaigning for increased hospital provision. It aims to show how 18th century medical publications from the societies spread information and medical education far beyond their members, while the societies' increased political involvement and encouragement of specialist sisciplines in the late 19th and early 20th centuries formed the basis for the modern medical profession. A guide to the societies, their purpose, history and the location of their records is also included in this medical history.
