University of Rome Maria kept her dream of studying medicine. In 1890, she began studying medicine at the University of Rome. In 1892, she passed the following subjects: botany, zoology, experimental physics, histology, anatomy, general and organic chemistry and earned a diploma of license. This degree, along with other studies allowed her to get into the medical program of that University in 1893.The other medical students there acted unfriendly due to her gender. She had to work after class because it was inappropriate for her to be in a class of boys and study a naked body. The smell of formaldehyde (a gas used to preserve corpses) was very disgusting, so she smoked tobacco to hide the odor. In her first year she won an academic prize which secured a place as a hospital assistant, thus, earning early medical experience. In her last two years she studied pediatrics and psychiatry,, and became an expert in pediatric medicine. she graduated in 1895, and
her thesis was published the year after. The Montessori Teaching System - "Google." Google. N.p., n.d. Web. 27 Feb. 2013. - "The Free Automatic Bibliography and Citation Maker."
