American Medical Student Association - Transgender Health Resources (AMSA)

Description:

Recognizing that discrimination based on gender and sexuality stems from common roots in sexism and heterosexism, the Gender and Sexuality committee is dedicated to assuring equal access to medical care and equality within medical education. We work to establish AMSA as a leader on issues affecting the health of women, intersex and the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities and support initiatives to improve policy at the institutional, local, state, and federal levels. We advocate for patients through curricular improvement, increased physician education, research and health-related resources. We support physicians-in-training by providing a safe and supportive environment, leadership development opportunities, and advocating for their rights.
