Summary:Obstetrician and gynecologist L. Natalie Carroll was born on January 26, 1950, in Nashville, Tennessee. She studied psychology at Lake Forest College in Lake Forest, Illinois, and transferred to Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee in 1974. In her senior year at Meharry, she was awarded a scholarship for community medicine in Jackson, Mississippi. In 1975, Carroll became the first woman to complete a surgery internship at Washington Hospital Center in Washington, D.C.; and, in 1978, became the first African American woman to complete an obstetrics/gynecology residency at the same facility. In 1980, Carroll opened her own Houston, Texas-based private ob/gyn practice. From 1983 to 1985, she chaired the department of obstetrics and gynecology at St. Elizabeth's Hospital in Houston, and served as chairman of the quality assurance and utilization review. She advocated for more African-American women to become doctors. In 2002, Carroll was elected 103rd president of the National Medical Association.
