Welcome to the blog of the History of Medicine Library at the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP). Our aim is to promote the Library's collections to both our Members and a wider audience, as well as providing RACP heritage news and updates.
We will also be welcoming guest writers with intimate knowledge and medical expertise to interpret significant and interesting items from our collections in order to support and promote the study of the history of medicine in Australasia and beyond.
