First advanced training in gender medicine in Switzerland:
CAS program of the Universities of Bern and Zurich.

Both biological and socioculturally determined gender have an impact on prevention, diagnosis, course and treatment of diseases. These differences are often neglected in practice and clinical research.

The CAS program in gender-specific medicine is a part-time university continuing education. It is designed for persons with a master’s degree in medicine or related fields. Tools, concepts and ideas are presented on how healthcare and medical research in different medical disciplines can be gender-equitable.
All modules can be booked individually (1 ECTS point/two-day module, CME points from medical societies).
