Cathryn Glazener graduated in Medicine at Dundee University in 1979 and joined the Unit in 1988 as a Wellcome Health Services Research Training Fellow. After training in obstetrics and gynaecology, she undertook research in infertility in Bristol, being awarded an MD for her thesis on management of unexplained infertility in 1984. She completed her postgraduate training in obstetrics and gynaecology in Aberdeen, gaining MRCOG in 1986 and admitted as FRCOG in 2003.  She became Reader in Health Services Research in 2006, and Personal Chair in 2009. In HSRU, she evaluated postnatal care for her PhD in 1999.
