ROCHESTER, Minn. — The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA), the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health of the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC), Mayo Clinic, and the Society for Women’s Health Research (SWHR) have joined faculty and researchers from around the world to host the Sex and Gender Based Medical Education Summit at Mayo Clinic on October 18-19, 2015. The full program agenda can be found here: Final Summit Agenda.
"As we enter the world of precision medicine, medical research about basic sex differences between men and women must be incorporated into curriculum for physicians and all health care providers for it to be translated into better outcomes for patients," says Virginia Miller, Ph.D., director of Women’s Health Research Center at Mayo Clinic.
This summit is the first of its kind, a national collaboration dedicated to engaging educational thought leaders in creating a roadmap to integrate sex- and gender-based evidence into medical and interprofessional education. The meeting will feature world-renowned experts in the field of sex- and gender-based medicine as well as curriculum leaders in academic medicine. Over 100 representatives from medical schools in the United States and Canada will be in attendance.
