Treating Trans Patients
Treating Trans Patients is a free, self-paced online course that helps aspiring and current healthcare providers understand and provide compassionate care for the transgender community.
Undergraduate Medical Accelerator Program (UMAP)
Administered in partnership with medical schools and area community colleges, this half-day hybrid (in-person and virtual) seminar provides current community college students with the information they need to plan their path to medical school. Information covered includes an overview of the medical school admissions process, prerequisite course requirements, and suggestions for extracurricular activities. In addition, students can get answers from medical school admissions team members, current medical students, and their school student services representatives during a “Resource Roundup” session. If you are a medical school representative interested in offering this project in conjunction with HPSA and your area community college, please get in touch with us for more information.
