A Bit of History

Branches of the British Medical Association were formed in Australia in the late nineteenth century onwards.  Before the formation of Australia's specialist Colleges, the Branches held regular meetings to discuss medical developments and unusual cases.

The BMA Branches formally merged into the Australian Medical Association in 1962.
