The Center of Excellence in Women's Health
The UCSF National Center of Excellence in Women’s Health (CoE) is one of the original six institutions so designated by the US Department of Health and Human Services. Since 1996, the CoE has played a key role as a leader of innovations in clinical practice, in the discovery of new information, and in the development of professional and community education. In this video segment, we visit with Dr. Nancy Milliken, Director of the UCSF CoE and the UCSF Women’s Health Center, and some of the CoE staff as they celebrate the 10th anniversary of the UCSF Center of Excellence in Women’s Health.
The CoE model of health integrates five core components- all important aspects for transforming women’s health and improving lives:
- Clinical care
- Professional Education and Training
- Leadership Development
- Community Partnership
