Women’s Health Concentration

The Interdepartmental Graduate Concentration in Women’s Health is co-sponsored by the UIC College of Nursing, the School of Public Health, and the Gender and Women’s Studies program and is housed within the College of Nursing.

This Concentration encompasses the multidisciplinary of Women’s Health and provides training in the foundations of Women’s Health through its structure and content. The Core courses provide a broad overview of the field and issues within Women’s Health, and they address the need for a conceptual and applied background in Women’s Health. The elective allows a student to pursue an issue or area of professional interest in Women’s Health. The multidisciplinary requirement in this Concentration ensures that a student has significant exposure to a paradigm other than the dominant paradigms used within their own school or department.
