The admission of women to a medical school that had trained only men for the previous two centuries was a major transformation. Further educational transformation has been the increase in the study of medical humanities by medical students and the development of a medical school archive to facilitate the study of medical history. This has enabled students to research some of the historical gender issues in medical education and consider what lessons we can learn when considering future developments to improve training, workforce retention and the patient experience. This poster deals specifically with the first women students admitted to St George’s, University of London. <br><br>This poster was presented at St George's, University of London's Education Day on Wednesday 15 November 2017.
