Good news for women with endometriosis. Gynecological disease will be on the program of the second cycle of training for doctors.
This is a huge step forward for the place of endometriosis in medicine. A decree from the Ministry of Education published on September 10, 2020 includes the disease in one of the chapters in the program for medical students entering second cycle. This chapter, From conception to birth, pathology of women – Heredity – The child – The adolescent takes into account the main pathologies of women. The aim of teaching endometriosis will be to help future physicians identify the disease: "know how to diagnose, know the main complications and the principles of disease management" This is the whole point of this crucial teaching, according to the press release from EndoFrance.
This is a victory and a step towards a notable advance according to EndoFrance which reminds that it is a fight which has lasted for several years. Indeed, in 2005 already, the association alerted "the Ministry of Health on the lack of initial training dedicated to endometriosis for general practitioners and gynecologists."

Thanks to this innovation in the student programs, we can finally hope that current medical students will be the doctors of tomorrow to better support women suffering from this gynecological disease.
