• Every Branch of the Healing Art

A History of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland.

In 1784, a small group of Irish surgeons broke ranks with the Guild of Barber-Surgeons to form the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI).  

Every Branch of the Healing Art
 tells the story of RCSI through its contributions to a near-quarter-millennium of surgical, medical and societal change.  From nineteenth-century bodysnatchers to the 1916 Rising, through two pandemics and two world wars, with a vivid cast of characters, and reaching right to the present day, Every Branch of the Healing Art is a fast-moving, lavishly-illustrated narrative of a great Irish – and, now, global – institution.
