Administrative history

The Academy of Medicine was founded on March 20, 1874, as the Ottawa Medico-Chirurgical Society. Its current name, the Academy of Medicine Ottawa, was adopted on December 30, 1946. This association of medical doctors met regularly since the 1870's to study issues of mutual concern and to discuss medical papers, many of them presented by invited lecturers from abroad.
