Welcome to the first course in gender medicine in Austria!
Since autumn 2010 the Medical University of Vienna provides a postgraduate course in gender medicine. With such an offer for further education the Medical University of Vienna fills a gap in the university study programs internationally. In the last years defining gender-specific treatments and therapies are a great demand in medicine. This results in the development of “gender medicine” as an independent branch of research and education, which benefits from the interaction of different disciplines and therefore is a classic example for interdisciplinary cooperation. » Preamble
(Vienna, 27-02-2013) From now on not only physician, but also dentists, pharmacists, biologists, nutritionists, nursing scientists, psychologist and sociologists are allowed to participate in the university course gender medicine.
