Robert Perry was born in Kilmarnock and received his medical education at the University of Glasgow where he graduated MD in 1808. He entered the Faculty of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in 1812. For over 30 years he was first a surgeon and then a physician at Glasgow Royal Infirmary. He took a great interest in the epidemic fevers which ravaged Glasgow every few years, and played a significant part in the differentiation of typhoid from typhus fever.
