Welcome to the Hartford Medical Society

Since its inception in 1846, one hundred and seventy (170) years ago, the Hartford Medical Society has espoused a three-pronged mission of learning, camaraderie and community service. Today we support the same objectives by sponsoring lectures, social activities, and outreach in the form of scholarships, mentoring, and medical exhibits.

Our historical library, with volumes dating to the early 1500’s, is housed at the University of Connecticut Health Center. It is a very special collection and a researcher’s delight.

We invite you to enjoy our offerings – library, lectures, social events – and to consider joining us. Visit the HMS Library website anytime.
