The field of women’s health, like all areas of medicine, is ever-evolving. To provide the most comprehensive and current care possible for female patients, you must continually update your practice to incorporate elements of care over a woman’s lifespan, from HPV vaccinations in adolescents, to breast cancer and heart disease screening, to hormonal therapy and osteoporosis as women transition into menopause.
UVA Health System is hosting a conference that will allow you to expand your knowledge of women’s health to help you better serve your patients. The agenda is focused on updating providers on the latest guidelines, practical management strategies and innovative treatment options in women’s health.
Who Should Attend
This course is directed to physicians, nurse practitioners, nurses, physician assistants, midwives, nurses and other healthcare providers who address women’s health issues, including internal medicine, family medicine, obstetrics, gynecology and radiology.
