National Women's Physician Day!

February 3rd will mark the 195th birthday of Elizabeth Blackwell, the first woman to receive a medical degree in America. Blackwell opened the door for women to enter the field of medicine - a career that had previously been inaccessible to females.

Today more and more women are being accepted into medical school and going on to become physicians, but even in modern times the industry is not exactly welcoming to female physicians.

We at TBH are proud to say that 40% of our Medical Staff of 170 Psychiatrists are female physicians and we hope to see that number grow in years to come!
