In Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohd Ali's youth, it was very rare for women to hold high positions in any field. Even more so in the field of medicine.

This did not dissuade her from trying. Siti Hasmah became one of the first Malay women to enroll for a medical course at the King Edward VII College of Medicine in Singapore after WWII.
