Scottish Society of Physicians

The Society was inaugurated in 1959 by a group of physicians led by Dr Fitzgerald Peel, a Senior Physician based at the Victoria Infirmary, Glasgow and one of the country’s first Cardiologists.

The Society is an educational charity which promotes postgraduate education and collegiality amongst physicians in Scotland. Each year from 1959, the Society has held an Annual General Meeting. The meetings include research presentations and keynote lectures from national experts and provide an unrivalled opportunity for continuing professional development for all physicians.

The Society now incorporates trainees in General Medicine and all its sub-specialities, as well as associate specialists and specialist doctors. Since 2019, the SSP is proud to also welcome Nurses & other Allied Health Professionals as Associate members.
