Academy for Men's Health
The Academy for Men’s Health is managed under the auspices of the Society for Men’s Health. As the field of men’s health is rapidly progressing with new modalities and treatment, the doctor on the ground will want to be updated on the latest developments. This is especially so in the age where men are living longer, and they are becoming increasingly concerned with issues of quality of life.
The academy aims to upgrade academic training and professional development to generalists and specialists who are interested in men’s health studies, making them confident in providing the latest and the best advice for men’s health.
