woman who wanted to be a doctor

I'm looking for a peom I read a long time ago about a woman who wanted to be a doctor so she dressed up like a man and went to medical school. I thought it was by Elizabeth Barrett Browning or Emily Dickinson but I can't find it. The title I believe was just a woman's name.
If anyone has any idea it would be a great help to me.
Thank you very much!

It sounds as though it was inspired by Dr James Barry. There are several biographies of her, so if you can get to a library it might be worth looking them up.
