LGBTQ MED

The mission of the LGBTQ MED group is to improve health care for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer patients. We work toward this goal by educating medical students on health disparities in this population and the many factors that affect LGBTQ access to care as well as quality of care. We also train medical students in ways to make health care settings a safe zone and to build trust in the physician-patient relationship. By helping future physicians become more comfortable with LGBTQ patients and knowledgeable about LGBTQ health issues, we hope to eliminate the many health disparities facing LGBT patients.
