2015 Sex and Gender Medical Education Summit
Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN
October 18 – 19, 2015
The Sex and Gender Medical Education (SGME) Summit was convened at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota on October 18-19, 2015. The Summit was initially envisioned by a group of individuals from diverse organizations engaged in sex and gender science and education. A national collaboration was launched to create a road map for integrating sex and gender scientific evidence into medical education. At the Summit, U.S. and international leaders of sex and gender based medicine and medical education presented information about the integration of sex and gender into their curricula, while federal officials and researchers discussed the evolving sex and gender integration landscape at federal agencies and academic health sciences centers. Medical curricula leaders from 111 U.S. and international medical schools attended the Summit, as did representatives from professional, student and nonprofit organizations and government agencies. Others from the U.S. and abroad participated via webcast. The Summit concluded with working groups where participants developed plans for creating sex and gender based competencies for medical education and for integrating sex and gender knowledge at their medical schools.
The SGME Summit e-proceedings provide a road map for educators across disciplines to integrate sex and gender content into their institutions’ curricula. They are available on the SGME website.
