Profile America — On this date in 1848, the first medical school for women opened in Boston. At the time, it had a faculty of two and 12 students. By 1874, the school had graduated almost 100 doctors. That year, the Boston Female Medical School merged with the Boston University School of Medicine to form the world's first coed medical learning facility. Today in the U.S., some 58 percent of all college students are female, and around 48 percent of medical doctorates awarded each year are earned by women. Of the nearly 900,000 active physicians in the U.S., 590,000 are men, and 285,000 women. Female doctors make up the great majority in the specialties of obstetrics, gynecology and pediatric medicine.
