John Abernathy apprenticed in 1779 to Sir Charles Blicke (1745–1815), a surgeon at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London and attended the anatomical lectures of Sir William Blizard (1743–1835) at the London Hospital. He attended Percivall Pott's surgical lectures at St Bartholomew's Hospital, as well as the lectures of John Hunter. He began to give lectures at his house in Bartholomew Close, which were so well attended that the governors of the hospital built a theatre (1790–1791), and Abernethy thus became the founder of the medical school of St Bartholomew's where he was elected principal surgeon in 1815. His name is associated with the treatment of aneurysm by ligature of the external iliac artery.
