The history of radiology is filled with many remarkable individuals, but one of the most remarkable is Marcus F Wheatland. He was the first African-American specialist in radiology, obtaining his medical degree from Howard Medical Department in Washington, DC in 1895. This was a remarkable achievement, considering that it was 100 years ago and African-Americans were not yet fully accepted in the medical field.
Wheatland practiced in Newport, Rhode Island and made a name for himself as a pioneering radiologist. He was a trailblazer for African-Americans in the medical field and his legacy lives on today. His story is an inspiration to all those who strive to make a difference in the world.
