In 1950 the Section of Paediatrics was formed. From the Academy’s foundation in 1882 the four main Sections were the Sections of Medical, Surgical, Obstetrical and Pathological. There were also two sub-sections in 1882, the Section of Public Health under the direction of the Medical Section, and Anatomy and Physiology under the direction of the Surgical and Medical Sections. Both of these Sections were declared Sections in 1887, the Section
