Women's Health Education Program

Students in the Women's Health Education program at Drexel University College of Medicine.

Drexel University College of Medicine's Women's Health Education Program (WHEP), part of the Department of Medicine, is one of six original National Centers of Excellence in Women's Health awarded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women's Health. WHEP is committed to advocating for women's health issues in medicine. Our efforts are directed toward long- and short-term change, with the hope that the future physicians we train will view women's health as a fundamental element of medical care that is more than reproductive health.
