Biology of Sex Differences | Year: 2013
Research conducted to date has deepened our understanding of sex and gender differences in the etiology, diagnosis, treatment, and outcomes for many conditions that affect both women and men. The Sex and Gender Women's Health Collaborative (SGWHC) is supported by the coordinated efforts of our founding partners: the American Medical Women's Association, the American College of Women's Health Physicians and Society for Women's Health Research to address the gaps in medical education with regard to sex and gender competency in the care of women. The SGWHC initiated and continues to build a novel digital resource library of sex and gender specific materials to be adopted and adapted into medical education and clinical practice, residing @ www.sgwhc.org. This article presents a case for the inclusion of sex and gender focused content into medical curricula and describes a means for students, faculty, and practitioners to access a centralized, interactive repository for these resources. © 2013 McGregor et al.; licensee BioMed Central Ltd.
