Women's Health Track

Goals of our program are to enrich resident training in by offering gender-specific clinical experiences throughout a women’s lifespan within the ambulatory block.; promote women's health research opportunities; provide mentorship and scholarly activities for residents; produce graduates who are proficient in women’s health practices; and encourage those pursuing careers in internal medicine subspecialties, academic medicine, or primary care.
