Overview:

The Covid-19 pandemic has dramatically transformed patient care, especially for outpatient practice. Our ambulatory environments have been transformed and telemedicine is now an essential strategy. Nonetheless, the unique needs of women patients and women health care providers requires innovative educational programs on women’s health. Clinicians must continue to focus on preventive medicine, reproductive health, management of common gynecologic and medical problems, behavioral medicine, palliative care, and the optimal use of diagnostic tests and new medications. This program will provide a practical, state-of-the art update on a full range of common but controversial issues in women’s health. Emphasis will be placed on the impact of covid-19 on women’s health, health disparities, and the care of vulnerable patients. An audience response system will be utilized and ample time will be provided for questions and discussion. An electronic course syllabus will be distributed to all participants prior to the meeting. This course, chaired by Dr. Robert B. Baron and moderated and taught by UCSF’s best teachers, is presented by the Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Medicine, in close collaboration with the Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences and is sponsored by the University of California, San Francisco.
