Women in Medicine


The 150th Anniversary of New York Medical College inspires a reflective look into the journey of women in medicine. In a time when women did not receive the same rights as men, a few courageous women pushed to open the field of medicine for all to study. One of these women, Dr. Clemence Sophia Lozier, founded the first women’s medical school in New York City, New York Medical College for Women. In 1918 this school became incorporated into the original New York Medical College, to be- come the co-ed school known today. Despite small growth in the numbers of women physicians throughout most of the 20th century, women currently account for half of medical students in the United States.
