OBJECTIVE: To design and implement an integrated course dedicated to women's and men's health.

DESIGN: A women's and men's health module that integrated the basic and clinical sciences was developed and implemented as part of the core undergraduate pharmacy curriculum. Instruction included classroom lectures, large- and small-group case discussion, self-directed learning assignments, and case-based simulations with standardized patients, all of which focused on conditions impacting women's and men's health.

ASSESSMENT: Assessment of student learning included multiple-choice and written examinations using case vignettes when possible, evaluation of documentation of patient care process with standardized patient interactions, and group case assignments. Students appreciated the scope of topics, the active-learning opportunities, and use of simulated patients, as well as teaching by experts in the area.

CONCLUSION: A mandatory course in women's and men's health was well received by students and ensured that these important issues were addressed in the undergraduate pharmacy curriculum.
