Women's health care issues for medical students: an education proposal

Women's health care issues for medical students: an education proposal

Women's Health Issues 6(4): 183-191

This outline of objectives in women's health care education is intended to provide a model for reviewing medical school curricula by interdisciplinary educators on a national basis to identify core knowledge, skill, and attitudes for medical student education. Review of the core objectives identified for internal medicine, pediatrics, family medicine, and surgery allows us to identify those that are essential to good patient care so they can be reinforced and evaluated at various outcome points. Developing learning objectives that are complementary rather than additive, that clarify important objectives for students, that bring course directors into collaborative communication, and that ultimately improve communication will require an atmosphere of cooperation among disciplines.
