1925 LIST OF USSR MEDICAL DOCTORS (As of Jan. 1, 1924): Female Doctors (#1)

The 1925 LIST OF USSR MEDICAL DOCTORS (in Russian) was published by the Public Health Commissariat. 1910 had been the last year that a medical list had been published, prior to 1925 publication. During the interim the composition of physicians changed, influenced by WWI, the Russian Revolution, and rampant epidemics. Doctors were now required by the Soviet government to apply to and join a medical registry, showing supporting documentation of education and medical training prior to acceptance. Registration was made uniform throughout the USSR.

The publication is divided into sections, part I lists women doctors. A partial roster of female doctors who were (or may have been) Jewish follows. It was unclear to me whether the locations mentioned after each name were the individuals’ places of origin, where their medical studies took place, or where they practiced medicine at the time the list was created. There were many misprints/misspellings--the information below is as written.
