This project will develop, evaluate and disseminate a clinical skills training manual to teach medical students the hands-on skills needed to provide high quality care to patients who are LGBT, gender nonconforming or have differences of sex development. The work extends a first-in-the-nation comprehensive curriculum revision made by the University of Louisville School of Medicine for teaching these topics in the classroom, and it has the potential to improve training of physicians nationwide through distribution of program materials to other medical training programs.
