Research Facts
Dr. Marion Hilliard graduated in Medicine from the University of Toronto in June 1927. She joined the staff of Women's College Hospital in 1928 as assistant to Dr. Marion Kerr, chief of the department of obstetrics and gynecology. The hospital was then located on Rusholme Road. She was appointed chief, department of obstetrics and gynecology in 1947 until her retirement in 1956. Dr. Hilliard studied abroad at the Queen Charlotte Lying-in-Hospital in London, England and at the Rotunda Hospital in Dublin, majoring in obstetrics. During a leave of absence in 1934, she went abroad again for post-graduate studies, this time to the Polyklinic in Budapest where she specialized in methods of overcoming sterility in women.
One of Dr. Hilliard's greatest desires was to have Women's College Hospital become a teaching hospital. She was very much involved with the negotiations that finally led to the hospital becoming affiliated with the University of Toronto's department of obstetrics and gynecology. Teaching status was achieved in her department in 1956. Dr. Hilliard retired as head of her department in 1956 in order to meet the university requirements regarding the qualifications of that office.
Dr. Hilliard was well known through her writings and publications: A Women Doctor Looks at Love and Life, Women and Fatigue, and was author of numerous articles for Chatelaine. The proceeds from her publications were turned over to the hospital's fund-raising campaign. When Dr. Hilliard retired in 1956, the Marion Hilliard Trust Fund was established to be applied to any medical project she might designate. She was also presented with a beautiful white leather book containing signatures of over twelve hundred grateful patients.
Dr. Hilliard passed away on July 15, 1958, at the age of 56. By serving in the field of gynaecology, obstetrics, in addition to prenatal and postnatal care of the mother, Dr. Hilliard contributed in many ways to the total health of women.
