Drexel University College of Medicine
Drexel University College of Medicine represents the consolidation of two venerable medical schools with rich and intertwined histories: Hahnemann Medical College and Woman's Medical College of Pennsylvania. Established in 1848 and 1850, respectively, they were two of the earliest medical colleges in the United States, and Woman's was the first medical school for women in the world.
Today, with more than 1,000 medical students, Drexel University College of Medicine is educating 1 in every 86 medical students in the nation. Graduate students number nearly 900. There are 2,700 full-time, part-time and volunteer faculty.
American Medical Women's Association (AMWA)
The American Medical Women's Association works at the local, national, and international level to advance women in medicine, advocate for equity, and ensure excellence in healthcare. AMWA has been a long-time advocate of the need to incorporate sex and gender sensitivity into medical education, training and practice. AMWA supports the expanded definition of women's health to include "all health conditions for which there is evidence in women, compared to men, of differing risks, presentations, and/or responses to treatment."
AMWA's Sex and Gender Health Collaborative aims to promote sex and gender based
medicine, create collaborations, and increase awareness that sex and gender matters.
Join our network so together we can transform health education to promote a sex and
gender framework in the approach to patient care. amwa-doc.org/sghc

Laura W. Bush Institute for Women's Health at Texas Tech University Health Science Center (LWBIWH)
The mission of the Mayo Clinic Women's Health Research Center is to advance scientific discoveries to improve the health of women through all life stages.
The Women's Health Research Center is creating a new era in women's health. The female body isn't simply a smaller version of the male form. Women and men have different chromosomes and hormones. Thus, risk of some diseases, their diagnoses and responses to treatments — including response to some medications — differ between women and men.
Yet, current medical treatments are often based on research that was conducted mainly on men or that, when women were included, did not account for differences between women and men.
Change is needed and is on the way!
Mayo Clinic is transforming women's health by advancing research and studies specifically focused on the female body through all stages of life — and we are seeing exciting results.
Investigators in the Women's Health Research Center are studying why certain illnesses occur only in women, manifest differently in women compared with men or are more prevalent in women compared with men. Armed with this information, physicians can better prevent, diagnose and treat some of today's most debilitating diseases.
For 150 years, Mayo Clinic has spearheaded research that has changed the face of medicine, enabling physicians around the world to provide lifesaving care to millions of people. Now, Mayo is advancing research focused on women's health so that medical care can be personalized for women and men.
Right now, there are more than 1,400 research studies related to women's health across Mayo Clinic campuses in Arizona, Florida and Minnesota. Mayo researchers are dedicated to tackling the health issues that continually plague women to improve their health and quality of life.
