Women’s Health


 

Women’s Health Focus

Our program offers a unique opportunity for residents who wish to develop expanded skills in women’s health. Our women’s health focus is based on the belief that women’s health is much more than just gynecology and obstetrics. Residents will receive enhanced training in areas such as screening, diagnosis and management of processes that are unique to women, are more common in women or have manifestations that are different in women than in men. All of these areas are taught with particular attention to lifecycle stages and psychosocial issues. We provide a longitudinal approach to learning and utilize varying experiences to provide enriched learning opportunities. The curriculum is enhanced by a focus on the following:

• Mastery of procedural skills frequently needed by women
• Enhanced training in interpersonal relationship skills that are more gender specific
• Recognition of gender bias in medical literature and use of an evidence based approach to screening, counseling and treatment
