Examining 700 years of trusted, historic medical research

The Royal College of Physicians was founded in 1518 by King Henry VIII, in response to a critical need for more stringent guidelines around the medical practice. It is the oldest medical college in England, and a leading professional membership body for physicians, with 37,000 members and fellows worldwide.

The organization works to improve health by influencing the way that healthcare is designed and delivered, promoting good health, preventing disease and enabling physicians to fulfill their potential.

Centuries after its founding charter, the Royal College of Physicians continues to play a pivotal role in setting and raising medical standards, and improving the health of the global population.

The history of medicine—from folklore to modern public health policy

The Royal College of Physicians archive, which ranges from the year 1205 through 1980, reflects the history and development of modern Western medicine, while documenting the interactions of the medical community with monarchs, politicians, and the general public.

Collections within this two-million-image archive cover a broad range of topics, from astronomy and anatomical studies to neurology and botanical research.

There is also a good deal of information related to the establishment of medical practice standards and medical education, as well as the formation of specialized fields of practice as we know them today.
