Faculty Training

Mainstreaming a gender perspective into the medical curriculum can only be successful if the staff responsible for teaching the curriculum understand and support the concepts being introduced. In order to ensure that faculty responsible for teaching or tutoring students understand gender as it is mainstreamed through the curriculum, a number of training activities have been conducted.

With funding provided by the Rural Undergraduate Support and Coordination (RUSC) Program of the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing, Monash published “Gender and Medicine: a conceptual guide for medical educators” in February 2004. With fundamental information about sex and gender, a gender perspective in medicine and gender mainstreaming for medical educators, is the centre piece of faculty and clinical tutor training at Monash.
