STEM2020 - Representation of sex differences in the Physiology curriculum: Room for improvement?

Gender inequalities are present within Sport and Exercise Science Degrees. Sport and Exercise Science is perceived as a masculine domain, perhaps biased against women. This research aimed to gain information from students regarding their perceptions of the physiology curriculum and to establish whether changing the content delivery of a module changed the above perceptions. Level 6 students completed questionnaires and focus groups at the start and end of a module where the representation of sex differences was enhanced. Recommendations are made to enable a supportive learning environment and to maintain/achieve an inclusive curriculum both in this discipline and across curricula.
