Sex and Gender-Based Medicine Curriculum

SGBMC Header

The goal of this integrated SGBM Curriculum project is to establish Patient Case Learning Modules and didactic lecture materials that both encourage the learner and increase their awareness of the role of sex and gender in every aspect of medicine. The modules will focus on areas of medicine that have established sex and gender differences and will be used in a longitudinal curriculum spanning Pre-clinical as well as Clinical years. The SGBM module and didactic material will not replace existing curricula or reinvent already well-taught sex and gender neutral topics.

The SGBM Curricular Model is readily adaptable to national medical schools. In addition, the model's unique design allows for expansion to an interprofessional team and case approach.
