Opening Doors: Women at the Medical University of South Carolina
Women’s roles at the Medical University of South Carolina are as varied as the women themselves. From the announcement of the acceptance of female students in 1895 to the selection of the first female Dean of the College of Medicine in 2010, women have significantly influenced and impacted the direction of the Medical University. In their roles as faculty, staff, and students, these pioneers opened up the health professions and the field of scientific research to generations of females hoping to pursue careers in medicine and science. The following women are but a few of the hundreds of women that have made their mark.
“Opening Doors: Women at the Medical University of South Carolina” is designed to be a “living” exhibit, meaning we will add information about MUSC women in the months and years to come. We welcome all suggestions, however please know that because of the amount of research time necessary for each biography we can't promise any one entry. If you are interested in helping conduct research on any MUSC women for this exhibit, please contact Brooke Fox.
