This elective is designed to teach internal medicine residents the skills needed to care for women of all ages in the outpatient setting. Residents will work with faculty in the internal medicine and gynecology departments at the UW Women’s Health Care Center (WHCC) and Harborview Medical Canter. At the end of the month, residents should be able to provide women patients with age appropriate preventive health care and anticipatory guidance, evaluate commonly presenting breast and gynecologic complaints, apply cervical cancer screening guidelines, counsel women on contraception and hormone therapy, and guide a woman to an appropriate and effective contraceptive or hormonal therapy method to fit her needs. To meet these goals, residents will rotate in gynecology clinics at both WHCC and HMC, dysplasia clinic at WHCC, breast clinic at WHCC and the 'preventive health’ clinic at WHCC. There will also be time reserved for self-directed learning using online and video modules and curated literature created specifically for elective participants.
