Liverpool Medical Institution (LMI) is one of the oldest medical societies in the world, tracing its origins back to the founding of the Liverpool Medical Library in 1779. For nearly two centuries this beautiful Grade II* Listed building has been a focus of medical life and a meeting place for the medical community of Merseyside, its primary role being that of a medical library. The Institution continues to serve the purposes for which it was founded, adapting itself to meet the various challenges of the times. The LMI is a Registered Charity and exists to foster an environment for furthering medical education and knowledge in the medical community and in the general public.
