THE SLOVENIAN MEDICAL ASSOCIATION AT ITS 145-ANNIVERSARY
Physicians throughout the world began to form associations in the first half of the nineteenth century, in order to realise their common interests more easily through them. A medical society was formed among the Slovenes in 1861. The contribution on the occasion of the 145th anniversary describes the development in the various periods of turbulent national history conditioned mainly by the socio-political arrangement.
