How to address sex and gender bias in medical research

Understanding how sex and gender interact enhances the quality of science, health, and medicine. Covid-19 is an excellent example of this. We are therefore very pleased to announce the start of the continuing education course CAS in Sex- and Gender-Specific Medicine (www.gender-medicine.ch) with several speakers from ISPM in March 2021.  

The two-day modules can be booked individually.

In the module "Study Design and Research" (June 2nd and 3rd 2021) it will be discussed how medical research can be designed and conducted without sex and gender bias, from research design, population selection and data collection to data analysis, interpretation of results and recommendations for clinical practice. 

The costs per module are CHF 960. PhDs receive a 50% discount.

Please refer to the attached module overview or the website www.gender-medicine.ch for details of the course content and registration deadlines.

The CAS is a collaboration of the Universities of Bern and Zurich and is coordinated at ISPM.
