The Houston History of Medicine Society was formed in 1986 as the Baylor History of Medicine Society and in 2008 changed its name to the Houston History of Medicine Society, jointly sponsored by Baylor College of Medicine and the University of Texas in an effort to appeal to a wider audience from the Texas Medical Center and the Houston community. In 2010 the TMC Library joined as a third co-sponsor.

Monthly meetings are held during the academic year (September to May) at which invited speakers present a one-hour lecture on some aspect of medical history. For information on the current year’s lectures, see the Houston History of Medicine Society home page.
