1 Credit CME

Join the AMA Council on Medical Education for a live session at the A-22 House of Delegates to explore best practices for teaching sex and gender in medical school curricula. This educational session is being offered in response to AMA Policy D-295.310, Sex and Gender Based Medicine in Clinical Education. The presentation will contextualize the need for updated and culturally competent curricula regarding sex and gender. Expert speakers will highlight gaps in medical research and education for different communities' needs, such as cisgender and transgender women and girls, transgender men and boys, non-binary people, and intersex people of all genders/people with intersex conditions. These speakers will also offer best practices for teaching care for patients within these groups, for health conditions across all organ systems. Students, residents, academic physicians, and all others interested in medical education and health equity will gain insights into how to expand competency in the diversity of sex and gender experiences and how to embed this within medical education for the benefit of all patients and physicians.
