ALVAREZ-CARRASCO, Ricardo I. Doctor Maria Laura Ester Rodriguez Dulanto: in pursuit of a dream against all odds. Acta méd. Peru [online]. 2019, vol.36, n.2, pp.170-178. ISSN 1728-5917.

Doctor Maria Laura Ester Rodriguez-Dulanto is one of our most respectable physicians. She possessed admirable talent and perseverance which were able to break the prevailing cultural paradigms in Peruvian society in the years after the Pacific War; however, to this day she has not received the recognition she deserves. The purpose of this paper is to inform Peruvian community in general and Peruvian physicians, about the life and work of this extraordinary woman within the historical context in which she lived, making her dream come true. Against all odds, she achieved her most longed for dream: become the first woman who qualified as a physician in Peru.

Keywords : María Laura Ester Rodríguez Dulanto; Peru; History of Medicine.
