Program for Sensitizing Medical Students to Sexuality Issues
Ojanlatva, Ansa
American Journal of Sexuality Education, v3 n1 p27-38 May 2008
The object here was to elaborate on the development, implementation, and evaluation of a sexuality course entitled "Principles of Healthy Sexuality." The goal of the educational process was for future medical professionals to be sensitized to sexuality issues and become comfortable with them both in their professional and personal lives. This elective 1 credit course contained 20 hours of meeting time and 18 hours of personal study for 10-12 medical students in discussion format. The implementation took place during the spring semester. The sessions were grouped together so that the course length was about 4-5 weeks. The designed course was also one of three electives from the author and included in the "Centre of Excellence in Education." (Contains 1 table.)
