L’ARSMB (Association Royale des Sociétés Scientifiques Médicales Belges) a été fondée en 1945 par les Docteurs Brohée, De Keyzer, De Moor, Lambin et Lorthioir dans le but de centraliser la documentation médicale belge et de rassembler les différentes publications sous le titre « Acta Medica Belgica ».

Ses activités se sont progressivement étendues de façon à faciliter le progrès des sciences médicales ainsi que l’action scientifique des sociétés médicales belges et de toute organisation belge dont l’objet principal est la promotion de cette action scientifique, notamment par la publication de leurs travaux, la prise en charge de leurs fonctions logistiques et l’aide à leurs secrétariats.

Actuellement, l’ARSMB regroupe 26 sociétés et assure la diffusion de 1 revue scientifique.


The RBAMS (Royal Belgian Association of Medical Scientific societies) was founded in 1945 by the doctors Brohée, De Keyzer, De Moor, Lambin and Lorthioir. Their purpose was to centralize the Belgian medical publications under the title “Acta Medica Belgica”.

Progressively the association started to focus on the progress of medical sciences in Belgium, through the Belgian medical societies and all Belgian organisations with similar  ambitions. Publication of scientific articles, logistic support and secretarial  aid  were just a few of the many means employed.

Today, the RBAMS includes 26 societies and 1 medical journal.


De KVBMG (Koninklijke Vereniging van de Belgische Medisch - Wetenschappelijke Genootschappen) werd gesticht in 1945 door de Dokters Brohée, Lambin, De Keyzer, De Moor en Lorthioir met het doel de Belgische medische publicaties te centraliseren en de verschillende uitgaven te verenigen onder de titel « Acta Medica Belgica ».

Haar activiteiten werden geleidelijk uitgebreid tot het bevorderen van de medisch-wetenschappelijke vooruitgang en het opdrijven van het wetenschappelijke niveau van de Belgische medische Verenigingen of van elke Belgische organisatie waarvan het hoofddoel is deze wetenschappelijke activiteit te ondersteunen. Dit meer bepaald door het publiceren van hun manuscripten, het overnemen van hun logistieke taken en het leveren van bijstand aan hun secretariaten.

Vandaag telt de KVBMG 26 Verenigingen en verzekert ze de verspreiding van 1 tijdschrift.
