'The aims of the Centre shall be to research and disseminate the history of medicine, both as an academic discipline and as a subject of broader public interest. Its close relationship and connections with the Trust, notably the Trust's Library for the History and Understanding of Medicine, will facilitate its commitment to promoting a vision of medical history which is comprehensive in chronological, geographic and thematic range, and which draws upon a wide field of scholarly expertise.
'While primarily devoted to research, the Centre will also play a prime role in outreach and in fostering public understanding of the subject, through teaching and training, through programmes of seminars, lectures and symposia, through publishing, broadcasting and other appropriate activities. It will have an international profile, attracting high calibre scholars and students from abroad, and participating in exchanges with history of medicine institutions around the world.'
