Contributors to Of Doctors By Doctors

Dr. Clarissa Fabre


History of Women in Medicine

United Kingdom

After completing her medical training in Sydney, Australia, Dr Fabre worked for a year in Canada (including work with indigenous Indian and Eskimo children) before moving to the UK (London and then Oxford). Her initial specialist training was in adult medicine and paediatrics, including two years of clinical research in Oxford on perinatal factors affecting child growth and development.

For the last 30 years she has been the Senior Partner in a semi-rural general practice in the UK. She also developed an interest in medical politics, culminating in the presidency of the UK Medical Women’s Federation (2010-2012), and representative of all East and West Sussex general practitioners at the British Medical Association (BMA) in London (2005 to 2012).
Dr Fabre was appointed to the position of Medical Women’s International Association (MWIA) representative at the World Health Organisation (WHO) in 2012. She became MWIA president-elect in 2016, and took up the presidency in New York in 2019.
