International courses

Online Training Modules

As part of the Canadian Institutes of Health Research, the Institute of Gender and Health is an international leader in fostering research that explores how sex and gender influence health. Here you can find their useful Online Training Modules. Take these training courses to learn how to:

  • Distinguish between and define sex and gender in health research.
  • Identify sex and gender differences in the mechanism, disease or treatment under study.
  • Identify methods for integrating sex and gender variables in health research contexts. 
  • Assess a research protocol or publication based on the integration or omission of sex and/or gender.

We also recommend the NIH sex-and-gender training modules, which are also free online but are more extensive, taking 5-6 hours.
