Corner Society Meetings

The George Washington Corner Society for the History of Medicine, named after University of Rochester’s first professor of anatomy, is a group of physicians, students, and other participants interested in the history of medicine. This year there will be five evening presentations on medical historical topics at the Rochester Academy of Medicine, 1441 East Ave. We will meet at the Academy between 5:30 – 6:30 pm for drinks and light fare; the presentation will follow from 6:30 – 7:45 pm.

The Corner Society is an important part of the tradition of medicine in Rochester, requiring ongoing support. Membership dues are $65 per year (waived for students but not for residents; couples pay $65 for a joint membership). Your dues allow us to invite out-of-town scholars as well as defray costs for medical students. In so doing, we hope to encourage their participation in the Society. If you would like to join, please send your check along with a completed membership form. Payment is by cash or by check payable to The Corner Society. If you know someone who is not a member, ask him/her to join with you. And, if your situation permits, please consider an additional contribution to the Society.
