Departmental Numbers1860 - 1937, nos. 1 - 2240; 1938 - 1973, A - Z; 1955 - 1973, interns L1 - L2125
System of Arrangement 1860 - 1937, numerical by certificate number and chronological by date of registration with an alphabetical name index in the front of each volume; 1938 - 1973, alphabetical by name of medical practitioner.
How To Use Series There is a separate index to registered medical practitioners for the years 1860 - April 1908 only (Series ID: 18607), but each of the volumes 1860 - 1937 also has an alphabetical name index in the front. The volumes 1938 - 1973 are arranged alphabetically by practitioners' names but are large and may be cumbersome to access.

This series can be used in conjunction with the Medical Board Minute Books (Series ID: 9217), letterbooks (Series ID: 8804) and the Inwards Correspondence (Series ID: 18613) to research biographical details and professional qualifications of particular medical practitioners as well as aspects of Queensland medical and social history.

Information Sources


These registers record the names of medical practitioners who were registered in Queensland by the Medical Board of Queensland. Entry details vary over time but generally include the certificate number, date of registration, and the name, address and qualifications of the practitioner. The registers 1860 - 1937 record original registration only but the registers 1938 - 1973 also record practitioners' annual registrations by including a receipt number under a yearly column heading. The registers 1938 - 1973 also include provisional registrations by date of registration at the end of each alphabetical section. There is also a separate register of interns 1955 - 1973.

The first page of the volume 1860 - 1908 has a list of "legally qualified medical practitioners under certificate to the Medical Board of New South Wales who were residing in this colony prior to the formation of the Queensland Board". Details for each entry include the name, address and qualifications, and if deceased.
