The Office of Women's Health leads women's health education efforts for students, medical professionals and community members.

Controversies in Women's Health

To improve health care for women everywhere, the Office of Women's Health at Mayo Clinic sponsors a national course each year titled Controversies in Women's Health. The goal of the course is to inform health care providers about emerging scientific and clinical evidence on medical conditions that are unique to women, occur more frequently in women or present differently in women.

See information about Controversies in Women's Health 2018.

Women's Health Grand Rounds

The Office of Women's Health sponsors a biweekly Grand Rounds series for Mayo Clinic staff featuring expert speakers in women's health topics from across Mayo Clinic.

Sex and gender education

The Office of Women's Health spearheads efforts to incorporate sex and gender curriculum into all schools within the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine and Science.

Women's Health fellowship

The Women's Health training track of the General Internal Medicine Fellowship, developed in honor of Julie A. Abbott, M.D., provides advanced interdisciplinary clinical training in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of health conditions that are specific to women, are more common in women or manifest differently in women.

The 18-month multidisciplinary clinical training program focuses on women's health conditions that have distinct causes, manifestations, outcomes or treatments or that have a high morbidity and mortality in women. The program also offers a mentored research project, for which some funding is available.
