About Kraków Medical Society

Kraków Medical Society (Towarzystwo Lekarskie Krakowskie) dates back to 1866, when it was founded thanks to the efforts of Doctor Aleksander Kremer. It answered the contemporary needs stemming from the rapid advancements in medicine as well as challenges faced by medical practitioners.
Kraków Medical Society was the third medical organization of its kind founded by Polish physicians.

The activity of Kraków Medical Society was disrupted by World War II. Once the German occupation had come to an end, the society resumed its operation. Since 1951, Kraków Medical Society has been a branch of the Polish Medical Association.

The main goal of Kraków Medical Society is the facilitation of continuous medical education and professional development of physicians. To this end, the society has been mainly focusing on producing medical publications and organizing educational events, such as training sessions, scientific meetings and medical conferences.

Every year Kraków Medical Society awards a prize named in honour of Professor Marek H. Sych for the best doctoral thesis in medicine.

Since 2003, Professor Igor Gościński has been the President of Kraków Medical Society.
