Are you thinking of becoming a Doctor?

This week we celebrate the birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, born on February 3, 1821. She was a remarkable woman. Not only because she was the FIRST female doctor in the USA, but because she was also so much more! Doctor, reformer, educator, meet Dr Elizabeth Blackwell.

It is accepted now that females may decide to study to become a doctor. Can you imagine the prestige bestowed upon Elizabeth Blackwell when she became the FIRST woman to receive a medical degree in the USA, and also to be named the FIRST female to be registered as a doctor in the UK? It was not a simple task!

Despite many rejections and criticisms, she persevered and went on to become one of the greatest pioneers in the development of health care for women.  Elizabeth trained many female doctors along the way and her story is nothing short of inspirational.

In her honour, she was commemorated on a postage stamp.

So, if you are interested in studying to become a doctor, here’s a ‘must-read’ story. To know and appreciate the background of women in medicine, gives you an insight into the difficulties they had to achieve their goals. Yes, many of us work and study hard today, but we have many pioneers to thank for the research and discoveries that we, at times, may take for granted.

We need YOU now to forge forward developing new techniques and methods and possible new discoveries – as we know, there is always something to learn. YOU are now the “Elizabeth Blackwell’s” of the future. Meet Elizabeth and let her be your inspiration.
