Welcome to the Anglo-German Medical Society

Before World War II there was extensive exchange between the British and German medical professions. With the idea of rebuilding the professional and personal relationships that had significantly cooled between medical doctors of the two countries during hostilities, the Anglo-German Medical Society (AGMS) was founded in 1959. Since then, a scientific conference has been held each year. The present membership is about 100, divided more or less equally between the British and the German Sections.

The Society’s main aims are as follows:

  • To encourage collaboration between doctors and medical scientists in the two countries.
  • To hold Annual Conferences alternately in the United Kingdom and Germany
  • To encourage an exchange of knowledge and ideas between the two countries.
