Appearances and Mentions

The Canadian Patient

  • Violet Hart is working at a booth at the medical exposition trying to get a message across about health and vitamins, while making a honest living.
  • She first meets George Crabtree who offers her a handful of trademark names for her vitamins and later points her booth out to Dr. Ogden who is at the exposition to enroll women in medical school.
  • Dr. Ogden wants to encourage Violet for she sees the passion the young woman has for the field and the University of Toronto has opened its doors to women. In addition, the good doctor is in need of an assistant again.

Dr. Osler Regrets

  • Violet has a deep discussion with Julia about the assisted dying of the elderly as she stitches up the patient, mentioning how she thought that Dr. Osler's words "had some validity" to them.
  • She is introduced to William Murdoch and Thomas Brackenreid when they visit the morgue to get the information on the second victim. Brackenreid jokingly mentions to Violet that he taught Murdoch all he knows after she tells Murdoch that she's heard so much about him and is honored to meet him.
