DIAZ, Héctor. The first peruvian female physician. Laura Esther Rodríguez-Dulanto MD (1872 - 1919). An. Fac. med. [online]. 2007, vol.68, n.2, pp.181-184. ISSN 1025-5583.

It is meritorious to remember and render deserved homage to Laura Esther Rodriguez-Dulanto MD, woman of extraordinary intelligence and vocation, who ignoring the epoch’s adventurous prejudices -because young Peruvian ladies could not seek high school or university studies- she was de first woman in Peru to enter the University in may 1892 and finally vowed as Physician and Surgeon on October 25, 1900, at the Faculty of Medicine of San Marcos University. This event did not have precedence in Peru and in Peruvian medicine, as she was The First Peruvian Female Physician. Moreover; I include unpublished data concerning her true names, exact date of birth and birth site.

Keywords : History of medicine, Peru; women; physicians, women.
