The input field teaching material allows you to upload slides, case studies or teaching video related to the topic of your article

Does your article include neither a symptom nor a concrete clinical picture? If so, please use the form found under “more gender-specific content”. With this, you can assign different subtopics to your article and enter the desired title of your article into the corresponding input field. In order to categorize your article, it is important to fill in the article type and summary fields, as well as agree to the copyright provisions. Assigning your article to certain subjects is voluntary and practical only when they are relevant to your topic. Please make sure to arrange the subjects according to their relevance for your article, and beginning with the most relevant. After categorization, you can save the content and begin entering your article. Do you want to discontinue your article? It is possible to save your article in the GenderMed-Wiki Board any time and to continue entering more information later.
