Sex and gender competency essential to medical care
Date:2/12/2013

le largest online collection of medical education curricula and teaching tools. This evolving content aims to foster sex and gender sensitivity in delivering optimal care for all.

Despite substantial evidence of differences in symptoms, responses and outcomes based on sex and gender, medical research and practice remain largely based on the model of the 70kg white male. Women are not small men, but more significantly, sex and gender variability go beyond obvious reproductive distinctions. Every cell has a sex.

"After more than twenty years advocating for research to understand sex differences, having the information taught in medical schools and translated to clinical practice is and continues to be the fulfillment of SWHR's mission," says, SWHR President and CEO, Phyllis Greenberger, MSW.

This collaborative supports the recommendations of the 2010 IOM Report on Women's Health Research, which states that while "over half of the U.S. population is female, gaps remain both in research areas and in the application of results to benefit women in general and across multiple population groups."

We welcome all institutions and organizations within the medical, nursing, and allied health professions to work with us to expand the Sex and Gender resource base, raise awareness, and advance the adoption of sex and gender content into medical curricula and practice.

What is Sex and Gender Competency?

"Sex" refers to our biology, or genetics (XX for women, XY for men); "gender" refers to social roles, behaviors and environmental influences. Sex and gender affect health independently as well as interactively.
