LGBTQIA+ Healthcare and Education
EduMed.org connect students with expert-driven information about education, training, and financial aid opportunities in healthcare and medical support.
Going to the doctor is rarely an enjoyable experience for any of us. But receiving healthcare as an LGBTQIA+ patient comes with its own set of unique challenges. Doctors and their staffs often haven’t received training on how to properly handle specialized LGBTQIA+ health issues and they may not know the correct terminology. This knowledge gap can be traced back to the college system, where LGBTQIA+ education and inclusiveness are improving, but still aren’t at the levels they need to be.
To provide a platform to address these issues, we created an online guide that looks at the various challenges LGBTQIA+ individuals face — from the college classroom to the doctor’s office — and presents actionable solutions for overcoming them. The guide also shows readers how and where to find LGBTQIA+ friendly schools and medical providers. You can read the full guide here:
