Biographical Sketch

Christine E. Haycock, MD

Christine E. Haycock (1924 - ) was born in Mt. Vernon, NY, and raised first in Richmond, VA, and then in Nutley, NJ. She graduated from the Presbyterian Hospital School of Nursing, earned her BS degree from the University of Chicago, her medical degree from the State University of New York, Downstate Medical Center (1952), and holds a master's degree in political science from Rutgers University.

Dr. Haycock first served in the Army during WWII in the US Cadet Nurse Corps. She extended her military career when she obtained her MD and became the first woman intern at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, at which time she became the first woman to transfer directly from the US Army Nurse Corps to the US Army Medical Corp. After serving in the United States and Japan, Dr. Haycock reverted to Active Reserve Status, ultimately retiring in 1984 at the rank of colonel. She is also a graduate of the US Army Command and General Staff College and the US Army War College (1977).

Dr. Haycock resumed her residency in surgery following her active military service at St. Barnabas Medical Center, and a year as a senior resident at St. John's Episcopal Hospital in Brooklyn, NY, then returned to Newark and opened a private practice in general surgery. She is a diplomate of the American Board of Surgery and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons. Dr. Haycock was a leading expert in Sports Medicine and was a member of the American College of Sports Medicine. She has published widely in this field, particularly concerning women in sport. In 1982, she served as president of the American Medical Women's Association, and was a past president of the New Jersey Medical Women's Association.

Dr. Haycock was long affiliated with the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey. In 1968, she joined the faculty of the New Jersey Medical School as associate professor of surgery and director of emergency services at University Hospital. She retired in 1992 as professor emeritus of surgery.

Dr. Haycock's wide interests include amateur radio, photography and videography, and breeding and showing miniature schnauzers.

The Foundation for the History of Women in Medicine and The College of Physicians of Philadelphia presented The Fifth Annual Alma Dea Morani Renaissance Woman Award to Dr. Haycock on October 28, 2004. In their citation, it was noted that

"Dr. Haycock excelled as a physician, teacher and mentor to other women who sought to become physicians. She is best known for her influence on Sports Medicine for women, her work on the eradication of uterine cancer, and her leadership in the establishment of the trauma center at University Hospital in Newark as well as her post as commander of a trauma unit during her service in the Army Medical Corps."
