Interdisciplinary Women's Health
This certificate is offered to enhance knowledge, research and policy in women's health. The certificate is interdisciplinary in nature because by definition, the field of women's health encompasses the physical, cultural, mental and emotional aspects of health. These varied aspects of women's health cannot be well represented by just one discipline, either in the health or social sciences, or the humanities.
