National Women Physician Day

by Medical Staff Office on February 5, 2016

Feb. 3 was the first National Women Physician Day. The date marked the 195th birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, a courageous woman who paved the path for females in healthcare. According to the 2014 Census of Actively Licensed Physicians in the United States, only 32 percent of all physicians are female. One behalf of AAMC, I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all of AAMC’s women physicians for the exceptional care they provide to our community, and for empowering women to pursue careers in medicine.
