Equal opportunities today? Marie Heim‐Vögtlin as a pioneer.

Adding ‘inter’ onto professional: a team of experts is not necessarily an expert team.
Prof. Jill Thistlethwaite, University of Technology Sydney

Marie Heim‐Vögtlin (1845 – 1916) is considered an important pioneer. She was the first Swiss woman to graduate in medicine in 1874 at the University of Zurich, which had been the first medical faculty in Europe to admit women. During her time as physician, she founded in 1901 the Zurich Nurses School.

At the 100th anniversary of her decease, the Faculty of Medicine and the Department of Gender Equality will honor Marie Heim‐Vögtlin with a symposium on interprofessionalism and equal opportunities.

Interprofessionalism is the term for two or more health professions working together to provide better patient care. It’s a new vision for health professionals.
