WHSDM courses are open to undergraduates and graduate students. Medical students please see the Women's Health Scholarly Concentration Application page for additional information.

Scholarly Concentration Application for Medical Students: Women's Health and Sex Differences

The Women’s Health and Sex Differences (WHSD) Application Area addresses a wide scope of sex/gender-based biology and medical topics, with a focus on health issues that are unique, more prevalent or different in women compared to men.  


The WHSDM Interdisciplinary Science, Education, and Research group is comprised of scientists and educators interested in sex as a biological variable and gender-based biology and medical topics. All interested researchers and students are welcome to attend the WISER group meetings/presentations on the third Wednesday of the month during the academic year. If you are a Stanford faculty member, post doc, or graduate student and would like to join our WISER email list to receive notice of upcoming meetings and events, click here.
