The Medical Sciences Academy was established in 1872 as a platform and meeting point for health professionals from Catalonia, the Balearic Islands, Valencia and Andorra. They aim at promoting the study of health sciences in all their facets (human, technical, social and civic), while taking into account welfare, educational and research aspects. Along the years, this goal has gradually adapted to the circumstances and needs of professionals and of society. Nonetheless, the Academy has sustained its independence and preserved its function as a scene for debate and as a link between different medical, pharmaceutical, biological and sanitary specialities.
