The AMHS members category along with annual subscription fees, is now discontinued.  

Instead, from 2022 we are aiming grow our database open to anyone  interested in receiving information about meetings and other AMHS activities.  In lieu of subscriptions we  encourage  Donations to the Society but donations are not mandatory.

To join the e-AMHS database, please email: AMHS Secretary

Provide your name, email address, mobile number

Please note all communication with AMHS is electronic 

 We especially welcome students, researchers and all those with an interest in health history and heritage,  those currently working or previously working in the health professions and lay people interested in medical  history. 

A great opportunity for collegiality and networking by attending  our meetings

Supporters of AMHS may borrow books of medical history interest from the EMDL library collection (excluding books marked as "Reference only" or those published before 1910). Please contact EMDL curator Juliet Hawkins for information on borrowing books. The Royal Australasian College of Physicians’ collection of historical books make up approximately 1/3rd of the nearly 5,000 books catalogued and shelved in the Library. There is also a separate display of books written by or concerning Auckland Health Professionals.

Many historic documents and photographs have been archived in a digital format held in a  Document Library. These are not available online but can be accessed by arrangement with the Archivist via the AMHS Secretary or via curator Juliet Hawkins  

We invite you to support AMHS by joining our mailing database and we look forward to seeing you at our programme of events.
