Polish attitude

Polish women are unique in all the world.

In 1862, Marie Zakrzewska, M.D., opened doors to women physicians who were excluded from clinical training opportunities at male-run hospitals, by establishing the first hospital in Boston and the second hospital in America run by women, the New England Hospital for Women and Children.

Marie Zakrzewska immigrated to New York in March 1853. During her first year in America she found little support for a career in medicine among the male practitioners she met. She enrolled at a traditionally all-male medical school, Cleveland's Western Reserve College, in 1854. She was one of only six women admitted to the school during the 1850s.
