Biographies

Dr Dagmar Berne was the first woman to study medicine in Australia. She gained entry to Sydney University in 1885, but was failed repeatedly by male lecturers who did not wish to see her graduate. In exasperation, she moved to London to continue her studies. Berne finally qualified as a doctor in 1893 and returned to Sydney two years later, setting up a practice in Macquarie Street. The London years took their toll on Berne, who had been forced to live in damp accommodation, subsisting on very little food. She died of tuberculosis in 1900, her thirty-fifth year.

  • Inducted into the Victorian Honour Roll of Women

Dagmar Berne enrolled in medicine at the University of Sydney in 1885, becoming the first woman to enrol in medicine in an Australian university. In the late 1880s she travelled to England where she gained her medical qualifications at London University in 1893. After working in a hospital in Tottenham, England, she returned to Sydney in 1895. Berne was the second woman to register to practice as a doctor with the Medical Board of New South Wales. She set up practice in Macquarie Street, but died of tuberculosis five years later.
