At a meeting of the General Council of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland, held on January 30th, 1970 a proposal to form a new Section of Rheumatological and Physical Medicine was discussed and doubts were expressed on the viability of such a new Section. It was decided to suggest further enquiry in the possibility of co-operation with the Section of Medicine and also to arrange for a pilot meeting in order to test the possible amount of support for a separate Section.

The General Council of the Royal Academy of Medicine in Ireland in the year 1972 agreed to the formation of two new Sections – the Section of Rheumatology and Rehabilitation and the Section of Ophthalmology.
