VCU is one of the most comprehensive institutions for health sciences in the United States and is one of only 20 academic medical centers with programs in almost every health-related discipline. In the School of Medicine, the Women’s Health Residency in Internal Medicine was established in 1997 to address the complex medical issues across a woman’s lifespan with attention to physiologic, hormonal, and psychosocial factors. In addition to meeting all Internal Medicine board certification requirements, this highly successful program provides additional training in Breast Health, Bone Health, Reproductive Health and Mental Health.

The VCU Institute for Women’s Health provides continuing medical education through the annual Women’s Health Conference. This highly successful program provides physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other health care professionals with evidence-based presentations on a broad range of topics relevant to women’s health across the lifespan. This conference attracts over 400 attendees from throughout the region.
