2017-18 is Women in Medicine Year, marking the 100th anniversary of the Medical Women’s Federation and the first time in history that the majority of the world-renowned medical royal colleges have been led by women.

'Women in medicine: a celebration’ is a free exhibition of specially commissioned photographic portraits honouring the contribution of women, past and present, to medicine. Twenty-six medical organisations, including all the medical royal colleges, have collaborated to put together the exhibition, which can be visited at the Royal College of Physicians (London) until 19th January 2018.

Modern day women in medicine were asked to nominate women from the history of medicine who inspired them. MWF president Professor Dame Parveen Kumar nominated Dr Jane Walker, who dedicated her life to helping Tuberculosis patients with open air sanatoriums and founded the MWF in 1917.
