Event Overview
Welcome message:

Increasing appreciation of the unique needs of women patients and women's health care providers has created a need for innovative educational programs on women’s health. This program, designed for family physicians, internists, gynecologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, and all others involved in providing quality health care for women, will provide a practical update on a full range of common but controversial issues in women’s health. The course will serve to enhance the skills of those already working in women’s health as well as help develop new skills for those expanding their work to include more primary care and office gynecology. Developed and taught by UCSF faculty in both primary care internal medicine and obstetrics and gynecology, the course will present an integrated approach to women’s health. Emphasis will be placed on new developments in preventive care and cardiovascular risk factors in women, issues in reproductive health, and clinical strategies in the diagnosis and treatment of common gynecologic complaints and common medical problems of women. Special emphasis will be placed on office skills needed for modern day practice including: enhanced skills in physical examination, common office procedures, clinical nutrition, assessment of new medical technologies, and how to better read the medical literature. The course will use interactive lectures, clinical vignettes, hands-on workshops, small group discussions, an audience response system and questions and answers. A detailed syllabus will be provided.

This course is presented by the Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, and the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences and is sponsored by the Office of Continuing Medical Education, University of California, San Francisco.

The purpose of this course is to increase competence and improve clinician practice in women’s health. We specifically anticipate improvements in skills and strategies to:

  • Implement new guidelines in office-based preventive medicine for prevention and early detection of cancer with clinical exam, pap tests, genetic testing and diagnostic imaging;
  • Implement new guidelines for prevention and treatment of cardiovascular risk factors in women;
  • Diagnose and treat common problems in women's health including abnormal uterine bleeding, first trimester bleeding, chronic pelvic pain, amenorrhea, PCOS, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, depression, somatic symptom disorders, Parkinson’s disease and tremors, and arthritis;
  • Facilitate counseling and informed decision-making in contraception;
  • Examine patients and perform common office procedures in gynecology and contraceptive technology;
  • Understand current guidelines for follow-up of abnormal pap and HPV tests;
  • Evaluate and treat common musculoskeletal complaints and sports injuries;
  • Counsel patients about current therapeutic options for obesity;
  • Increase quality and decrease costs in medical practice.
