Abstract

OBJECTIVES:

Our objectives were to (1) expand and strengthen the women's health curriculum at the University of California, San Francisco, and (2) evaluate the responses of both medical students and faculty to this curriculum.

STUDY DESIGN:

A written evaluation of the curriculum in women's health was completed by both students and faculty. Variables studied included mean scores of cases, the overall course score, and the preferences of medical students for faculty specialty in teaching the small groups.

RESULTS:

The overall course evaluation score was 7.81 (range 1 to 10). For those students who had both faculty from internal medicine or family medicine and obstetrics and gynecology, there was a strong preference that obstetrician-gynecologists teach the majority of the cases.

CONCLUSIONS:

The new case-based curriculum in women's health was enthusiastically received by both medical students and faculty.
