Alumnae in Medicine

"IF THIS PICTURE MAKES THE PRACTICE OF MEDICINE SEEM TOO HARD, IF THE GAIN DOES NOT SEEM WORTH THE EFFORT, THEN A GIRL SHOULD NOT GO INTO MEDICINE. THE GIRL WHO WISHES MEDICINE AS A CAREER BECAUSE IT IS THE ONE THING ABOVE ALL OTHERS THAT SHE WANTS TO DO WILL FIND THAT THE OBSTACLES SEEM AS NOTHING AND THAT THE REWARDS ARE ENTIRELY GRATIFYING."

-ANONYMOUS, AQ 1948
