What will I learn?
Women's Health Medicine is a rapidly expanding and diverse field of practice. It encompasses the timely provision of sexual and reproductive care, pre-pregnancy and pregnancy care as well as the management of female specific conditions and malignancies. Increasing numbers of medical practitioners are developing special interests in this area - in particular General Practitioners, family planning practitioners and generalist gynecologists. Significant career opportunities exist for those with demonstrable skills and knowledge in this field. In addition there are similar specialisations emerging in nursing and counseling, and amongst biological scientists. This program offers an entirely web-based study program enabling participants to effectively integrate their learning into their daily professional life without the costly disruption that face-to-face coursework entails. Individual courses within the Program have been developed so as to provide a practice-based and authentic approach to this field of study.
