Why National Women Physicians day?

Recognized for significantly marking the day when the first woman in history to earn her degree in medicine was born, the National Women Physicians Day serves as a special opportunity to recognize and appreciate female physicians. Elizabeth Blackwell, as is the name of the woman, was a United States-based medical student who courageously earned her medical degree. With this achievement, Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell began a movement that would far outlive her, and serve as a motivation for every other woman after her that aspired to earn a medical degree.

National Women Physicians Day marks the celebration of the bravery and courage that was exemplified by Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, as well as that of the other women to follow, who made the remarkable decision to pursue individual medical degrees. More importantly, this day is part of an ongoing effort to improve the work environment specifically for the increasing number of female physicians who take the bold step of taking medicine-related academic pursuits.
