100 years since women were admitted as full members of the University of Oxford, women now hold vital posts at all levels of this institution.

Across our 16 departments and numerous affiliated units, the women of Medical Sciences come from all walks of life, from all backgrounds, from all over the world. In the Medical Sciences it doesn’t just take a village, it takes a city to do what we do. A city of researchers, professors, clinicians, physiotherapists, research nurses, administrators, fundraisers, students, custodial staff, receptionists, teachers, lecturers, trainers and many, many more.

Medical Sciences Division asked 100 of these women to take part in a project to showcase diversity of roles they now hold. Launching on Thursday 11 February, each day they will be bringing you a new group of incredible women working across the Medical Sciences Division, each reflecting on their journeys, their place in Medical Sciences and their vision for the next 100 years. Each woman here represents countless more working in our labs, in our offices, in our lecture theatres to make the Division, the University and the medical sciences a better place. 

The project features five incredible women from the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences:

  • Alison Convey, Deputy Academic Lead for Primary Care Undergraduate Teaching
  • Jackie Walumbe, Clinical Doctoral Research Fellow, DPhil candidate
  • Jessy Morton, Office Manager
  • Laura Heath, GP Academic Clinical Fellow
  • Tanvi Rai, Health Researcher
