Women ” In 1865 Nadejda Souslova was in turn accepted at Zurich. In 1866, she requested the right to defend a doctoral thesis; she thus became the first woman doctor to graduate from a mixed European university.

“From John A. Murphy “The College”. “Dora Elizabeth Allman, a nineteen year old Protestant from Bandon, and Lucy Ellmarie Smith. A twenty-year old Presbyterian from Midleton, became the first medical students, graduating in 1896”.
