The Professional Education Committee of the Center of Excellence in Women's Health is cataloging and developing a database of the curriculum resources dedicated to women's health at the University of Utah.
These resources include Health Sciences curricula in:
- Women's health,

The database will be created to identify successful strategies in curricula.
