Katja Kero

I work as a gynecologist at Turku University Hospital in Finland. I am also psychotherapist and sexual counsellor. I have been working in our hospital in the outpatient clinic for the patients suffering from sexual dysfunction for over ten years. I am also a specialist in the Seri Support Center for Victims of Sexual Assault. I contributed writing the Chapter “Violence against women“ in the NFOG Textbook for Medical students.

I have done research in our SexMedU-research group. We have been focusing on exploring the education of sexual medicine in Medical Schools in Finland. The group has published articles in the international peer-reviewed journals. I also have a research group focusing on domestic violence and another little different one, on vaginal microbiota.

I am interested in developing education for the medical students and also in networking with the colleges in the Nordic Countries.
