The Multidisciplinary Committee of Sexual Medicine (MJCSM) and the European Society for Sexual Medicine (ESSM) collaborate in order to provide to medical doctors competency certification in Sexual Medicine.

Sexual Medicine (SM) is a highly specialized post-graduate specialty dedicated to quantitative and objective diagnostic examinations of various diseases and disorders, and psychosocial conditions affecting sexuality. The Multidisciplinary joint committee for Sexual Medicine (MJCSM) has formulated a new curriculum for training in SM. This document has the aim to present recommended standards and guidelines for training in SM within the European Union (EU) in order to acquire specialist competence in SM. The primary goal is that this curriculum will constitute an approved training program in all countries within the EU where SM is practiced.
