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 general 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, patient counseling, common office procedures, assessment of new medical technologies and therapeutics, clinical nutrition, and reading the medical literature. The course will use interactive lectures, clinical vignettes, hands-on workshops, small group discussions, audience response, and questions and answers. A detailed syllabus will be provided.

We specifically anticipate improvements in skills and strategies to: • Implement new guidelines 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, menopause, hypertension, high blood cholesterol, diabetes, obesity, thyroid disorders, osteoporosis, sleep disorders, family planning, STI’s, and sexual health. • Recognize and treat common lesions of the vagina, vulva, and cervix. • Diagnose and treat common sports injuries. • Facilitate counseling and informed decision-making in preventive medicine, contraception, and abortion. • Perform physical examinations and common office procedures in gynecology and sports medicine. • Counsel patients about dietary change, exercise, vitamins, and supplements. • Treat pain with minimal amounts of opiod medication. • Improve communication with all patients. • Effectively prescribe new diagnostic tests and new medications. • Increase quality and decrease costs in medical practice.
