1948 - 2021
Welcome to Remembering Jim Dornan.
This website has been set up by Jim’s family so that friends, colleagues, and the countless lives of those Jim had touched who wish to express their message of condolence and peace can do so.
The outpouring of support globally since his unfortunate passing on March the 15th, is testament to what an inspiration in life Jim was both personally, as a Father and a Husband, and professionally as an internationally respected and renowned expert in Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
Jim began his medical career qualifying in 1973. His hard work and determination led him on to various senior positions with both the Queen’s University and Ulster University in Northern Ireland. Jim regularly lectured both in Ireland and internationally.
In 2004 Jim was elected Senior Vice President of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, where he helped develop Global health initiatives, including the establishment of an emergency obstetrician that provides lifesaving skills for medics, midwives and nurses in nations with scarce resources. Jim is survived by his son Jamie, his two daughters Jessica and Liesa, and his wife Samina.
At the age of 73 Jim sadly passed away on March 15th 2021, after battling Covid-19.
