History

A la suite d’une invitation lancée par l’Abbé Arthur Maheux, quatorze personnes se rencontrèrent à l’Institut d’histoire et de géographie de l’Université Laval le 24 octobre 1950 pour créer la Société canadienne d’histoire de la médecine (SCHM). Parmi ces personnes, on retrouvait des médecins, des historiens, des archivistes et des membres de communautés religieuses. Le Dr Sylvio Leblond (1901-1990), qui enseignait alors l’histoire de la médecine à l’Université Laval, fut élu premier président de la Société. Il conserva ce poste jusque en décembre 1951, moment où il quitta Québec pour Chicoutimi.
