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.

The Women's Health Seminar Series is open to any students and faculty interested in attending. Typically held on select evenings (5:30-7 p.m.) at the Queen Lane Campus, each seminar is recorded to be available for all. Please join us!

Break-Even Analysis of Doula Support on Cesarean Section Reduction
Cesarean deliveries have been increasing in frequency over the past two decades. With each cesarean delivery, there is a possibility of developing co-morbidities and complications, as well as future cesarean sections, in addition to greater costs to the individual than vaginal deliveries. Multiple studies have shown that non-medical, continuous supportive care by doulas during labor decreases risk for cesarean deliveries and can decrease expenses for the patient.

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.
