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. We also strive to create an inclusive space for people of all gender identities, each of whom face unique challenges 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 and will view gender past the male-female binary that so many have been taught.

The Social Determinants of Health for Infertility: How Financial, Educational, Racial and Social Disparities Affect Access and Outcomes of Fertility Treatment
In 2005, the World Health Organization (WHO) established a Commission on Social Determinants of Health (CDSH) to promote health equity between and within countries. After several years, the WHO CDSH published the report, Closing the Gap in a Generation: Health Equity Through Action on the Social Determinants of Health. The report defines the social determinants of health as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.”

About the Women's Health Education Program

Our mission is to innovate, educate, advocate and integrate by preparing tomorrow's physicians for excellence in health care delivery to all women across the lifespan.

Our goal is to train medical students to be physicians who treat patients holistically and are active listeners who integrate new knowledge with clinical care.
