The Heritage Society



The Fellows, Members and Affiliates of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh are rightly proud of the long history of our College, which builds on the legacy of our predecessors. With this in mind, the College's Council has taken the decision to establish a Heritage Society of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh.


The Society has been developed as a channel through which our College membership and the public can support the work of the College in the three areas of Heritage, Research and Education.


Membership of the Heritage Society is through donation only and entry to the Society will fall into four categories: Guardian, Benefactor, Member and Friend.


Those who signed up to become Guardians before June 2013 have been acknowledged as Founding Guardians of the Society. You can find out more about membership of the Heritage Society on the Membership Categories and Benefits page.

This £4.2m project will transform the experience and access for our 30,000 worldwide visitors each year. You can find out more about this exciting project on The Lister Project page of this website or on our  Museum website.
