We are excited to welcome you to the new expanded Spring Course jointly provided by the International Society for the Study of Women’s Sexual Health and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. This year we welcome you to our nation's capital. In response to the request from past registrants for more time, we start the course earlier on Friday. We hope this will address those needs.
The basic topics and teaching objectives of the course remain in place. All content has been updated, and some of the interesting specialty lectures have been changed. You will note that the ISSWSH course faculty changes from course to course, with some repeat lecturers and qualified local speakers being brought onto the faculty as time and location allow. This will maintain the flavor of the course while allowing it to evolve. Potential attendees of the courses include (but or not limited to) physicians, residents, students, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists and sex therapists.
This year we have returned to a format that allows all registrants an opportunity to attend all five breakout sessions on Saturday and on Sunday, rather than having to pick and choose each day. We believe this will be beneficial both to the attendees and to the course instructors. You will also have an opportunity to hear case studies first hand from patients with distressing sexual health problems, and the changes to their lives with treatment. Finally, during lunch on Saturday you will have the opportunity to eat lunch with a member of the faculty to discuss practice models. We hope you will have time to interact with faculty and other course attendees throughout the course.
