Cafe MED - First Female Medical Graduates of the University of Aberdeen


  • -


Bringing the public, researchers and clinicians together

In 1900 the first female doctor graduated from the University of Aberdeen. In 2017 fifty-eight percent of UK graduates in medicine were female. This evening we will discuss the changing medical student population and the careers of the first five female graduates in medicine from the University of Aberdeen. We will consider some of the challenges these pioneers faced and how these relate to problems we still face today.

Speakers: Rosannah Jackson and Claire Repper (third year medical students), Professor Rona Patey (Director of the Institute of Education for Medical and Dental Sciences) and Dr Stephen Lynch (President of Aberdeen Medico-Chirurgical Society).
