- This course, taught by a multidisciplinary group of experts from the Midlife Women's Health Center at Massachusetts General Hospital, addresses the problem of optimizing the care of midlife (menopausal) women. This course is needed as midlife women's health involves a range of medical specialties and changes in clinical practice based on rapidly evolving evidence from advances in research and technology.
