Support the College of Medicine Donor Stories

Great Minds Think Alike

Two alumnae of the Woman's Medical College Class of 1968 struggled financially to attend medical school. While their families were supportive of their aspirations to become physicians, neither had the financial resources to help their daughters go to Drexel's predecessor medical school. Both women worked their way through medical school, which added significantly to the burden of their studies. As a result of their experiences, Janet Phillips Kramer, MD, and Patricia Crumrine, MD, independently decided to help current Drexel medical students by making a planned gift to establish scholarships for women and other students who might not otherwise be able to afford a medical education.
