    Is this for GCSE History- Medicine Through Time? Women did medical stuff for the poor and for their family as far as I know, but they weren't actually accepted as doctors.

    Middle Ages I think is pretty much the same. You've got the travelling "businesses" that sell items and "cures" and then move onto elsewhere, you've got the trained doctors, there's blind faith in God, and as far as I know women were still the ones caring for the poor and their family. All except the trained doctors and faith were looked down upon. Hope that helps.
