Women in Medicine 2016

August 3-7, 2016

Hilton Chicago/Indian Lakes, Bloomingdale, IL

 

Overview

Women in Medicine 2016 marks the 33rd annual retreat and CME conference for lesbian and other sexual minority female physicians, medical students and their partners. The yearly conference is a forum for discussion of front-line research on women’s health issues, as well as lesbian, bisexual, gender-queer and transgender women’s issues. There also are non-medical seminars of interest to all, as well as rejuvenating social opportunities for children and adults alike. Essential networking and mentoring opportunities abound, with a special focus on the needs of medical students and residents. This is the only medical conference where partners are not only invited to attend, but are also welcomed and encouraged to participate and learn from the high quality medical and non-CME presentations. We are proud to present a broad range of medical, ethical and social issues relevant to today's world.

In keeping with the retreat format, only registered physicians and their registered partners are invited to attend the conference. Children are invited to social functions as deemed appropriate.

This event is historically geared toward lesbian and other sexual minority female physicians and their partners. It highlights women's health, including lesbian health. However, topics vary across a broad range of medical specialties, and are appropriate for both generalists and specialists. Speakers include nationally and internationally known experts in their fields.

Objectives

By the end of the event, participants should be able to:
1. Recognize the current state of medical education in relation to the treatment of LGBT patients and identify opportunities to improve it, thereby decreasing health care disparities.
