Women’s Health Info & Medical Library

At University of Colorado OB-GYN & Family Planning, our goal is to advance women’s health using the most proven and advanced medicine, quality patient care, top research, and patient education.

We believe in the value of patient education. To provide our patients with a reliable source of information, we have created an online medical library on a range of women’s health topics.

From increasing awareness about conditions that our patients may face to inspiring healthy choices through better understanding, this online resource will help patients take charge of their health.

In addition to working with our doctors, we encourage you to explore these medical information resources. Browse by  topic in the sidebar to the right or below.
