Medical School Curriculum
Women’s Health Research at Yale is leading efforts to integrate the influence of sex and gender on health into the Yale Medical School pre-clinical curriculum. Dr. Kelsey Martin, a practicing hematologist and oncologist and Assistant Professor at Yale School of Medicine, is spearheading the process as WHRY’s Associate Director for Medical Education in Women’s Health. The goal is for instructors to teach the latest findings concerning sex and gender across the different disciplines, thus leading to better outcomes for patients.
Developing world-class experts
Creating a forward-thinking medical curriculum
Learning from patients at Yale New Haven Hospital
WHRY’s training program also includes collaborations that advance research in clinical settings. For example, Dr. Lisa Freed’s research within Yale New Haven Hospital's Women's Heart and Vascular Program. This research is developing interventions to achieve better cardiac outcomes for women. Dr. Freed has also served as a mentor in WHRY’s Undergraduate Fellowship. As a mentor, she helps to prepare the next generation of clinicians to treat patients and provide a special emphasis on clinical care for women.
