Program Description

The Women’s Health & Sex Differences (WH) Application Area addresses a wide scope of sex/gender-based biology and medical topics, with particular attention given to those women's health issues that are unique, more prevalent or different, than found in men.

Women’s Health & Sex Differences students receive training in a model that integrates biomedical and social science, by way of interdisciplinary, collaborative experiences driven from basic, translational, population and clinical research.  This study transcends the boundaries of medical specialties, in order to provide a more comprehensive understanding of health for all women.
