Gender Education

Our team is heavily involved in promoting the integration of gender into education and research.

We are convinced, that sex and gender differences ought to be part of the medical curriculum in order to be implemented in clinical medicine. This should happen through mandatory and elective courses. Further options for acquisition of gender knowledge are master studies. In this context, GiM and six partner universities organized in 2009-2011 the module "Gender Medicine". The follow-up of this project the Master Module 2012 "Gender Medicine".

Gender medicine and gender-specific research in general are becoming increasingly relevant in Germany and internationally and we are very pleased to collaborate with several of these institutions.
