San Diego Sexual Medicine Preceptorships
Come train with world-renowned sexual health professionals with over 40 years of experience
The SDSM Preceptorship Experience
San Diego Sexual Medicine is pleased to offer preceptorships with the opportunity to shadow and work along side our world-renowned doctors and clinicians including Irwin Goldstein, MD, Julea Minton, NP-C and Catherine Gagnon, FNP-BC. This experience may include office interviews, exam room testing and possibly surgical intervention. In between patients you will be offerered mini-lectures by Dr. Goldstein to provide you with information through deidentified patient scenarios and photographs to further your learning experience. You will also be able to speak with our sex therapist, Rose Hartzell. PhD, EdS, CHES, LMFT, however you will not be able to sit in on her sesssions with patients.
We see men with low sexual desire, erectile dysfunction, orgasmic disorders, ejaculatory disorders, penile pain, penile curvature, hypogonadism and PGAD. We see women with low sexual desire, arousal disorders, orgasmic disorders, sexual pain, hormone management and PGAD. Our patients have an opportunity to work with a physician and/or nurse practitiner, a sex therapist and a physical therapist if warranted, so you will be able to see how a multi-disciplinary practice functions.
For those interested, your preceptorship may include discussions with our business manager about coding, fees or equipment and our program coordinator about educational programs, marketing your sexual medicine practice and clinical research. In addition, we look forward to maintaining a relationship with you to discuss any concerns or issues that may arise in the future regarding patient diagnosis and/or management.
If you are interested in learning more about our preceptorships, the cost, and scheduling, please contact Sue Goldstein, at email@example.com. For those new to the field, we recommend a course in FSD before your preceptorship to maximize your learning, offered by ISSWSH, NPWH or AUA. Currently Sprout Pharmaceuticals is offering a grant to cover the cost of a one week preceptorship, exclusive of travel expenses. To apply for this grant, please send your CV and a letter of interest including why you want to participate in this training and how you intend to integrate your new knowledge into your practice to firstname.lastname@example.org by April 15. You will be notified by May 1 whether or not you you are a grant recipient.
Experience intensive, 1 on 1 training
with the founder of sexual medicine
San Diego Sexual Medicine preceptorships are available from one day to four weeks. We recommend your completion of a course in treating either men’s or women’s sexual health (AUA or ISSWSH are good resources) before coming for a preceptorship if you have not had experience in this area. Your stay can be anywhere from one day to four weeks, but recommend your attending for at least several days to maximize learning and understand the subtleties involved in diagnosing men and women with sexual health concerns.
We allow a maximum of two providers from the same practice per day, and one practice per day. Special pricing is available for preceptorships lasting longer than one week – contact Sue Goldstein for special pricing
