Eva Alberman graduated from The London Hospital Medical College in 1955 with a first-class degree.
In 1948, the University of London required that all London Medical Schools offer co-educational medical education without restriction. Alberman was amongst the first cohorts of women medical students admitted to The London following this decision.
She became a clinical assistant in 1957, and was awarded the degrees of Doctor of Public Health in 1960 and MD in 1965, both by the University of London.
Alberman went on to become Professor of Clinical Epidemiology and retired in 1991.
She is currently Emeritus Professor at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine at Barts and The London.
She has made significant contributions to work on Down's syndrome and birth rate trends.
