Trott worked as a radiologist from 1975 to 2002 at Cariboo Memorial Hospital.

During her lifetime, retired radiologist Mary Trott has seen the percentage of women in the medical profession grow.

“I think it does permit women to have a life, mostly due to the changes that have occurred in working conditions,” Trott said. “One thing I cannot stress enough to younger women physicians is that many women go it alone successfully, but if you are going to have a life partner and a family, it really helps to have someone who is prepared to provide unflinching and unfailing support.”

Eventually she applied and was accepted for a general internship at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.
