Title

Dr. Sarah A. Dolley

Description

Sarah Dolley graduated from Rochester’s Central Medical College in 1851, becoming just the third woman in the U.S. to complete medical school and the first to be accepted as an intern, completing her training at Philadelphia’s Blockley Hospital. The country’s first female doctor, Elizabeth Blackwell, graduated from Geneva Medical College in 1849, but her education did not include hands-on practice. Dolley co-founded the local chapter of the American Red Cross; she practiced in Rochester until her death in 1909.
