Dr Edward Henry Embley

Born: 28 February 1861 Castlemaine, Victoria
Died: 9 May 1924 Camberwell, Victoria
Henry Embley trained as a pharmacist before undertaking medical training at the University of Melbourne, graduating in 1889 and establishing a general practice.
He began his research into a purer form of ether for anaesthesia in the late 1890s.  This led to his research into the use of chloroform anaesthesia.
In 1895, Embley was appointed Honorary Anaesthetist at the Melbourne Hospital and in this capacity taught the medical students until his resignation in 1917.
Dr Embley was the first recipient of the David Syme Prize for Research in 1906 and after his death in 1924, the E H Embley Memorial Medal was established.


Attendance at this meeting will be allocated in the ANZCA CPD portfolio under the knowledge and skills
category "learning session" for one credit per hour.
