Free Course on Transgender Health
Treating Transgender Patients is a free, self-paced course designed to help aspiring and current health care providers become allies and offer compassionate care to the transgender community.
Topics included in the course include:
- Gender affirming care
- The intersection of gender and culture

The course includes over nine hours of audio and video content, with the majority of voices coming from the transgender community, along with companion reflections assignments.
