Gender Medicine

The basic curriculum Gender Medicine is being offered within the framework of medical studies at Ulm University. Human Medicine students can attend elective lectures and acquire the additive transferable qualification (ASQ) ‘Gender Competence’ as part of their studies.

Gender Medicine analyses gender-related differences and similarities.

The resulting scientific findings feed straight into student education and medical care, including

  • prevention,
  • diagnosis,
  • therapy,
  • rehabilitation


of clinically relevant diseases. The greater goal is ultimately to optimise and individualise patient care.


Gender Competence denotes the knowledge and the ability to recognise socially and culturally constructed gender roles and the ability to deal with it in a way that offers both genders new and diverse opportunities for development.
