VA docs rusty on women's care learn new skills

KISSIMMEE, Fla. (AP) - August 8, 2011 The VA has been bringing hundreds of doctors and nurse practitioners to mini-residency workshops where they learn about women's health and practice doing pelvic exams. The topics include how to talk to female veterans who may have been sexually assaulted.

So far, the VA has a designated women's provider in nearly all its 150 medical centers and in at least 60 percent of its 900 community-based clinics.
