Continuing Professional Development
All health professionals, such as doctors, nurses and pharmacists strive to provide the best possible care. In order to achieve this we must educate current and future health providers to consider each patient's uniqueness and that means first and foremost taking into consideration how sex and gender impact health and wellness.
Online Continuing Medical Education and Certificate Program
LWBIWH's "Y Does X Make a Difference?" currently has one completed module and thirteen models in various stages of production for web-based availability. Course participants who complete ten CME hours will get credit toward the LWBIWH Certificate of Advanced Training in Sex and Gender-Based Medicine.
