History of Women in Medicine at Yale

Aperture: Portraits of Women Faculty in Medicine

As part of the celebration commemorating 100 Years of Women at YSM in 2018, the school commissioned photographer Robert Lisak, MFA’81, to produce a series of photographic portraits of women faculty. These portraits formed the basis for Aperture 1, the first rotating exhibit sponsored by the YSM Program for Art in Public Spaces, which opened in March 2020. Aperture 2, featuring a different set of portraits, is now on display on the second floor of Sterling Hall of Medicine.
