It is a pleasure to welcome you to the website of The International Society for Gender Medicine (IGM). This website presents a platform for physicians, scientists and professionals from all para-medical disciplines who are interested in the new science of Gender Medicine and who share the common goal of promoting this science. Gender-specific medicine is a new way of looking at the physiologic and pathophysiological differences between men and women and great efforts need to be invested in research and education in order to re-write many chapters in modern medicine. The IGM has been founded less than a decade ago as an umbrella organization for national and professional societies dedicated to the study of gender and sex specific differences. Our member societies and organizations are in Austria, Germany, Italy, Israel, Sweden and in the U.S. Together with individual members from countries without professional societies we have now over 400 members and we are growing steadily. IGM member societies are sponsoring diversified educational programs and have organized until now 5 international congresses and many national workshops, scientific meetings and workshops.
During the 5th International Congress on Gender Medicine which was held in Dec 2010 in Tel Aviv , Prof. Virginia Miller, the president of OSSD and myself agreed that we should have joint meetings of our societies which should take place in alternative years in North America and in countries with member societies of IGM. The respective boards of both societies immediately endorsed this proposal and in June 2012 we had our first historical joint meeting in Baltimore.
On the pages of this website we will keep you posted on new developments related to our society, we will inform you about the activities of our member societies and we will do our best to promote communication between members and member societies.
