This course is desgned to promote an integrated, multidisciplinary approach to clinical anatomy and women's health. It is intended for any fourth-year medical student interested in women's health. It is especially designed for those students interested in OB/GYN or in women's health within the practice of Internal Medicine or Family Medicine. The course meets throughout the month of February. Morning sessions are primarily devoted to basic science lectures and laboratory sessions (e.g. cadaveric dissection). These basic science sessions include advanced dissection of gynecologic anatomy, bone and breast histology, H-P-O axis and menstrual cycle, and a review of basic embryology. Afternoon sessions are devoted to clinical-correlate sessions, which include topics such as maternal physiology, breast cancer, endocrine disorders, menopause, hormone replacement therapy and cardiovascular disease, eating disorders, contraception and STDs, sexuality, depression, gynecologic and obstetric imaging, etc. Clinical faculty from Internal Medicine, Radiology, Radiation Oncology, OB/GYN, etc. will be involved in teaching this course.
