A core program of the Institute for Women’s Health and Leadership at Drexel University College of Medicine, ELAM continues the legacy of advancing women in medicine that began in 1850 with the founding of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania, the nation’s first women’s medical school and a predecessor of the Drexel University College of Medicine.

ELAM offers intensive leadership training with coaching, networking and mentoring opportunities aimed at expanding the national pool of qualified women candidates for leadership in academic medicine, dentistry and public health. Dr. Sabo-Attwood is one of only 54 applicants selected to participate in this year’s ELAM program.
