Medical School

Part of Group:

In November of 1848 the first medical school for women opened. The Boston Female Medical School is now Boston University School of Medicine. Located in Boston, Massachusetts. This was the first school to train women in the field of medicine. Before merging with Boston University in 1874, It was originally founded by Samuel Gregory. It was created to exclusively promote the medical Education Society to accurately reflect on the fact that the focus was more on the education on women. Gregory argued that the United States was the only country in the world that females were dependent on males for assistance in childbirth. Gregory also believed that women were more likely to avoid using drugs and medical instruments during the process of childbirth. Women were showing that they were taking actions in a more delegate matter. They also were more likely to attend more classes and graduate with more of an interest. This would lead to less fatalities during the process. The more education the women were provided the more the women adapted to the criteria. These steps provided women with the education to become midwives, nurses, and physicians. The public believed that the women were adapting extremely well, and it turned out to be a huge success.

I am a female who grew up being told I could do a female job; I could do whatever I wanted with my life. There was a problem with that statement though, females were looked past, and males could do all the jobs a female could with greater amplification. I wanted to help people and be there for people. My mother needed support and reassurance when I was born into this life, while it was a successful delivery, she has said it was not comfortable or enjoyable. When the Medical School opened for women to get them a head start with no pressure, I light up like a Christmas tree, I was so happy. I wanted to do what I knew was best for me to have a successful like and turn my life around. I knew I needed to attend. I was very successful, I met some of my best friends for life, and I feel stronger than I have ever in my life. Not only do I get to help other women with one of the greatest moments of their lives, I get to see all the joy and happiness that I worked up to. I feel magical with my life, and my parents could not be more proud of me.,in%20the%20field%20of%20medicine.
