The Elizabeth Blackwell Society (EBS) seeks to inspire, empower, and connect women in medicine. EBS is a student run group dedicated to highlighting the accomplishments of women in medicine, providing tools and support for women to address the unique challenges they face in medicine, and fostering relationships between faculty and students.

Some of the most important activities sponsored by EBS include a faculty-to-student mentoring system, a student-to-student mentoring system, regular talks and panels featuring healthcare providers and leaders in medicine, and an annual service event with local Philadelphia high school students.

EBS is an official chapter of the American Medical Women's Association (AMWA).
