Trans Health Primer
A priming resource for medical learners on trans health care, including historical context, guidelines on medical and surgical care, trans health from a general practitioner’s viewpoint, as well as tips on providing culturally competent care. This resource is designed to supplement gaps in medical education and to build competence in learners working while outlining further resources to broaden your own learning.
