Context

Creator(s): Dublin Clinical Club

  • Administrative History ↴

    The Dublin Clinical Club was founded in 1894 by a group of doctors including Thomas Myles, Frederick Conway Dwyer and Arthur Gerald Chance, who served as the first Honorary Secretary. The aim of the club was to encourage clinical and experimental research. Membership was initially limited to 20 doctors, who were each to pay a yearly subscription. Meetings were held every Tuesday evening from late October to May. Rule 12 of the club established the format of the meeting, with each member being required to present a clinical case or specimen at one meeting during the year. As well as the regular meetings an annual meeting was held in October each year. Within the first few years an annual dinner was also added to the club’s calendar of events.
