    • Manage positive cytology and HPV test results, high risk HPV genotype results, and histologically confirmed lower genital tract neoplasia reflecting current and future patient risk of high grade neoplasia (medical knowledge; practice based learning; patient outcomes);
    • Apply colposcopy to the diagnosis and management of lower genital tract disorders in ways that reflect its usefulness and maximum benefits while minimizing potential harms and recognizing limitations of the method (medical knowledge; system-based practice; patient outcomes);
    • Successfully apply consensus guidelines for cervical cancer screening and management of cervical abnormalities to women in both the general population and in special circumstances using evidence derived from epidemiological, natural history and observational studies (systems-based practice, practice-based learning, patient outcomes, medical knowledge);
    • Successfully apply management strategies to women with lower genital tract disorders in special populations, especially underserved women, under-screened (including mentally ill, homeless, American Indian, Alaskan, immunocompromised, transgender populations, with insight into special problems encountered (medical knowledge, practice-based learning, patient outcomes, systems-based practice);
    • Integrate into practice new insights from the latest research on prevention, diagnosis and management of lower genital tract disorders (medical knowledge, practice-based learning);
    • Diagnose and treat lower genital tract disorders to include cervical, vaginal, vulvar, and anal intraepithelial neoplasia, genital warts, and other vulvar and vaginal diseases (medical knowledge, practice-based learning, systems-based practice);
