Dr. Elissa Cohen is a community obstetrician gynecologist and devout women’s health advocate.  When she is not in the operating room performing minimally invasive gynecological surgery or in the caseroom delivering babies she can be found either teaching medical students and resident or working on her PhD in education. Her current research focuses on women in academic medicine and leadership. Her passion for issues of equity, diversity, and inclusion are ever-present in her research endeavours, patient interactions, and are also foundational in her commitment to sharing her intersectional feminist perspective with the next generation of physicians via her activities in the field of medical education.
