About SAMF

Since launching our mutual fund in 1788, we are proud to have supported thousands of doctors and their families when they needed it most. From assisting spouses when a Society member passes away, to financing educational costs for students from medical families facing hardship, SAMF has dedicated more than two centuries to its members.

The Society was founded as the Society for Relief of Widows and Orphans of Medical Men. We are a registered charity governed by a Royal Charter, Supplemental Royal Charter and By-Laws. We now operate under the working title of the Society for Assistance of Medical Families (SAMF). SAMF better describes our work and aims in our third century.
