100 Years of Women at Yale School of Medicine

View this Exhibit

“The enrollment of women in the School of Medicine has ceased to be an experiment.”  Written in 1923, seven years after the first woman was accepted into Yale Medical School, this sentence signalled the recognition that women were now a part of the medical community. This exhibition explores the history of women in Yale Medical School - faculty, staff, students, nurses, residents, doctoral students, and researchers - through the 20th and early 21st centuries.


Curated by Toby Anita Appel, Ph.D., and Melissa Grafe, Ph.D, John R. Bumstead Librarian for Medical History. Christopher Zollo greatly assisted with creating the online exhibition, with additional contributions by Kelly Perry and Emma Brennan-Wydra.
