Doctor, reformer, educator!

EBlackwell2

She paved the way for women in medicine. 

Despite many rejections and criticisms, Elizabeth Blackwell persevered and went on to become one of the greatest pioneers in the development of health care for women.  She trained many female doctors along the way and her story is so inspirational.

It is accepted now that females may decide to study to become a doctor.

  • Can you imagine, the prestige bestowed upon Elizabeth when she became the FIRST woman to receive a medical degree in the USA?
  • Then to be named the FIRST female to be registered as a doctor in the UK?

It was no simple feat. Certainly, her work led her to be admired and revered. Elizabeth_blackwell_stamp

“Who inspires you?”  Perhaps Elizabeth Blackwell will inspire you in whatever you choose to do. We often lean towards people who have achieved their goals, particularly if they had to ‘climb over’obstacles in their way.

So, if you are interested in studying to become a doctor, here’s a ‘must-read’ story.

blackwell

To know and appreciate the background of women in medicine, gives you an insight into the difficulties they had to achieve their goals. Yes, many of us work and study hard today, but we have many pioneers to thank for the research and discoveries that we, at times, may take for granted.

We need YOU now, to forge forward developing new techniques and methods and possible new discoveries – as we know, there is always something to learn. YOU are now the ‘Elizabeth Blackwell’s’ of the future. Meet Elizabeth and let her be your guide to success.


QUESTIONS:

  1. Where was Elizabeth born?
  2. What was the name of the college that accepted her application to study to become a doctor?
  3. When she graduated, no-one would hire Elizabeth. Where did she go to practice medicine?

Dr. Christiaan Barnard – FREE eBook and Audio for February

Posted on Updated on

In the romantic world, they say our hearts are often broken. Unfortunately, this is also true in regards to our physical heart health.

heart 2Therefore, we are forever grateful to pioneering heart surgeon, Dr Christiaan Barnard, for his determination and skill that created hope for those suffering from cardiac problems.

Christian Barnard - Copy

Christiaan Barnard was born in November 1922 in South Africa. One of his brothers died of heart problems and perhaps this urged Christiaan to study medicine. He went on to specialise in cardiothoracic surgery.

Christiaan Barnard performed the second kidney transplant in South Africa in October 1967.

Then just two months later on 3 December 1967 (and assisted by his own brother), Christiaan Barnard performed the world’s first human heart transplant operation.

Later he wrote, “For a dying man it is not a difficult decision because he knows he is at the end. If a lion chases you to the bank of a river filled with crocodiles, you will leap into the water, convinced you have a chance to swim to the other side.”

Follow Christiaan Barnard, as he developed remarkable skills and methods to help people all over the world.  He dedicated his life and work to the medical profession.  His achievements have had a profound influence on the world of cardiac surgery. Gain a personal insight into the life of ‘the man with the Golden Hands’.
