The Ulster Medical Society is a general medical society based in Northern Ireland. It is open to all registered medical practitioners regardless of their place of work or speciality.
The object of the Society is to improve the care of the sick and to promote and advance medical science by developing the education and knowledge of all concerned in medical matters. It was granted charitable status for tax purposes by the Inland Revenue with effect from 30 May 1990. The reference number is CRN 47602.
The Society has an annual programme of medical lectures and has published the Ulster Medical Journal since 1932.
Through the kindness of the Queen's University of Belfast the Society has its own rooms in the Whitla Medical Building, Lisburn Road, Belfast.
If you are not a member of the Ulster Medical Society, we would appeal to you to give the question of joining your consideration. By doing so you will enable us to widen its influence and sphere of usefulness still further, and we would hope that you would benefit from the meetings, journal and social contacts.
The Council of the Ulster Medical Society consists of the President, the office-bearers and six members. Elections to Council are held during the Annual General Meeting in May and the President is installed during the opening meeting in October.
