Vulvoscopy Course

Vulvosopy Course Top New

As part of treating women with sexual dysfunction, a physical exam including a vulvoscopy is recommended. While many offices treating women with sexual health issues have a colposcope, few practitioners are trained in examining the external genitalia under magnification, as it is not part of standard training. The purpose of this workshop is to provide attendees with up-to-date knowledge and recommended skills for diagnosing and treating various sexual health problems, including dyspareunia, vulvar dermatoses and various infectious diseases that affect the genitals.

In advance of the course, there will be two virtual sessions. These sessions are open to everyone. Registration for the Fall Course is NOT required to attend/register for the Vulvoscopy Course.
