Milroy lecture: why can't we learn from our mistakes (in-person)

The Milroy lecture will be held both in person and online on 31 October 2023, as part of this year's Med+ conference. Please note that this booking page is for people who wish to attend the lecture in person. 

History of the Milroy lecture

The lecture was founded by a bequest from Dr Gavin Milroy FRCP (1805–86). Dr Milroy’s intention was to ‘promote the advancement of medical science along with the interests of philanthropic benevolence and of social welfare’.

The subject of the annual lecture should be of relevance to state medicine and public hygiene, although the interpretation of this can be broad.

Applications are open to members and fellows of the college and the Faculty of Public Health. The subject suggestions given by Dr Milroy are kept in print for the guidance of lecturers.

This year, the lecture will be given by Dr Barry Monk, as part of the Med+ 2023 conference.
