The online Advanced Certificate of Men’s Health provides medical professionals with a robust understanding of men’s health issues commonly seen in primary care. Delivered by leading experts, the program will enable you to better address your patients’ concerns, exploring medical conditions pertinent to male patients such as penile conditions, fertility, testicular and male breast cancer, hair loss, genital inflammatory dermatoses, androgen deficiency, dementia, cardiovascular health, and weight control.

The gender-specific health needs of men are a significant part of day-to-day work in general practice. In Australia, men are generally less healthy than women and have a lesser life expectancy. Three quarters of Australian men are overweight or obese, and half of all men have chronic disease. More than half drink alcohol excessively, and the leading cause of death among Australian males is cardiovascular disease. It is therefore crucial that primary care physicians have the necessary skills to address common concerns among their male patients, improving outcomes and saving lives.

Many men do not report their health problems or seek treatment, neglecting to manage serious health concerns unless they have a long-lasting relationship built on trust with a medical practitioner who understand their needs. A more “male friendly” GP can develop a stronger rapport with their male patients to uncover and treat any health problems.
