Milroy lecture on state medicine and public health

The Milroy lecture on state medicine and public health bursary was founded by a bequest from Dr Gavin Milroy FRCP to endow an annual lecture on state medicine and public hygiene.

The lectureship

The lecturer is appointed by Council and the subject should be of relevance to state medicine and public hygiene, although the interpretation of this can be broad.

Dr Milroy’s intention was to ‘promote the advancement of medical science along with the interests of philanthropic benevolence and of social welfare’. A copy of Dr Milroy’s suggestions on the subject of his bequest and a list of recent lectures is available to download.
