Get the story...
The students at Woman’s Medical College were encouraged to attend a four-year course in order to obtain their medical degrees. A woman who intended to earn a degree at Woman’s Medical College was also required to pass entrance examinations in English composition, math, physics, and Latin. A first-year student would take courses such as anatomy, chemistry, hygiene, and pharmacy; while third-year students would have more advanced and specialized courses such as pathology, operative surgery, and medical diagnosis. In addition to lectures, the student also worked in laboratories and observed surgeries.
The annual announcements list the enrollment and graduation requirements for students, as well as information about class schedules, recommended textbooks, fees, and college activities.
