Gender and Medical Education

Monash University's Faculty of Medicine, Nursing and Health Sciences is the first in the world to commit to mainstreaming an evidence-based gender perspective throughout its new medical curriculum. To this end we do not limit discussion of gender to women’s health but through gender analysis of the entire curriculum development, assessment and clinical teaching process we systematically identify where the gender has an impact on health presentations, interventions and outcomes and include this in the curriculum.  Visitors are welcome to use information posted on this website with the appropriate citation to the authors.
