The Women Physicians digital collection documents the history of women
physicians beginning with the first degree-granting medical school for
women, Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania (WMCP). Founded in 1850,
WMCP trained thousands of women physicians who practiced in all parts of
the world, and provided rare opportunities for women to teach, practice,
perform research and manage a medical school.
The collection includes
correspondence, scrapbooks, clippings, college records, images, diaries,
publications and ephemera.
