Tri-City Medical Center Celebrates Its Women Physicians

(Source: Tri-City Medical Center) - In 1849, Elizabeth Blackwell, MD became the first women in America to earn a Doctor of Medicine (MD) degree. She was inspired to pursue medicine by a dying friend who felt that her experience would have been better if a woman physician had treated her.

After having numerous medical schools reject her application because she was a woman, Dr. Blackwell eventually attended New York’s Geneva Medical College ‘as a joke’ and graduated first in her class. She went on to open the Women’s Medical College in New York City and the New York Infirmary for Women and Children to provide jobs for female physicians. Dr. Blackwell paved the way for women in medicine and served as a role model for those who dreamed of becoming a doctor, including many here at Tri-City.
