Our collections chart the history of medicine and science. Careful custodianship over three centuries has ensured that the collections are in good condition but it is important that we make them available.

Your donations will help us to:

Increase the resources we can deliver to schools, including our Museum in a Box loan kits

Provide free onsite and online exhibitions

Digitise and share online more unique archival manuscripts

The College is a charity and recieves no government funding. The College's heritage events, exhibitions and school resources are funded entirely through donations rather than through subscriptions from our Fellows and Members.

About the charity

We help qualified doctors to pursue their careers in specialist (internal) medicine through medical examinations, education and training. We also provide resources and information to support and facilitate professional development for physicians throughout their careers.
