National Women Physician Day

Celebrated annually on February 3, National Women Physicians Day, also referred to as Women Physicians Day or Women in Medicine Day, recognizes and pays tribute to the groundbreaking accomplishments and continuous contributions of female physicians within the healthcare sector.

The day holds special significance in commemorating the pioneering spirit of Elizabeth Blackwell, MD, who achieved a historic milestone in 1849 by becoming the first American woman to earn a medical degree. Her remarkable feat paved the way for numerous women to pursue careers in medicine.
