The Royal College of Physicians (RCP) is the oldest medical college in England. Its collections relate to the history of the medical college, and to the physician's profession. Collections range from portraits, providing a pictorial and sculptural record of presidents, fellows and other physicians associated with the RCP, from its foundation in1518 to the present, the fascinating Symons collection of medical instruments, and the Hoffbrand collection of apothecary jars. Also now on full public display at the RCP are a rare set of six 17th century anatomical tables, which were the centre-piece of the award winning ‘Curious anatomy’s exhibition.

Today the RCP represents over 28,000 physicians and is responsible for setting standards of medical practice, providing education and training, and advising patients, professional and government on health and healthcare.
