About the Author

After graduating Phi Beta Kappa from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1980 with a bachelor's degree in biology, Dr. Sax began the combined M.D.-Ph.D. program at the University of Pennsylvania. He graduated from Penn in 1986 with a Ph.D. in psychology and the M.D. degree. He went on to do a 3-year residency in family practice at Lancaster General Hospital in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. In 1990, he launched a private medical practice in suburban Montgomery County, Maryland, about 30 minutes northwest of the District of Columbia. He practiced in the same location, serving families in the same small town, for 18 years (1990 - 2008). In June 2008, Dr. Sax retired from medical practice in order to devote himself full-time to issues of gender in education, and to leading NASSPE, the non-profit organization he helped to launch in 2002. More information about Dr. Sax -- including his publications, contact information, and schedule of events -- is available at the NASSPE web site
