Women's health and managed care: implications for the training of primary care physicians



Women's health and managed care: implications for the training of primary care physicians



Journal of the American Medical Women's Association 50(1): 17-19

An interdisciplinary primary care specialty in women's health is the best strategy for preparing physicians to deliver cost-effective comprehensive care to women in a changing health care marketplace.
