1 Wimpole Street is owned and operated by the Royal Society of Medicine (RSM) which is a not-for-profit charitable registered organisation. Hosting your event at our venue guarantees an investment in the continuing professional development of the medical professions.
Our building has been home to the RSM since 1912, following the merger of 17 specialist medical societies in 1907. Since then, it has been at the forefront of several key medical developments, such as malaria research and the first recorded growth of human cancer. We were even used as a venue for doctors to provide emergency medical assistance during World War I. You can read more about the RSM and what they do on the official RSM website.
The RSM is a leading provider of high-quality continuing postgraduate education and learning to the medical profession. Its mission is to advance health, through education and innovation.
Independent and apolitical, the RSM also aims to actively encourage and support those who are entering medicine and healthcare.
The RSM is a Royal Charter body registered with the Privy Council, and our official Patron is Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
