This collection is an assembly of essential literature to the discipline of sex and gender-sensitive medicine. It draws from basic research, clinical research and public health. It is directed towards students and scholars, who approach the discipline for the first time or who have been engaged in the field for some time, but want to broaden their perspective. Since the implementation of sex and gender-sensitive medicine is a change process, I added several papers that go beyond simple research performance and place our work in a broader context. The collection is a work-in-progress and will grow over time, please feel free to contact me with suggestions.
