When Susan La Flesche Picotte graduated from the Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania in 1889, she was the first Native American woman in the United States to receive a medical degree.


Returning to Nebraska, where she was born, she set up a medical practice and worked to build a hospital in Walthill, Nebraska, which is now a National Historic Landmark named in her honor.
