In addition to in-person training opportunities, MSHS employees at all hospital and ambulatory sites now have access to a variety of free online curricula in LGBT patient-centered care to meet the training requirements necessary for renewal of each Leadership Status on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s LGBT Health Equality Index. All employees at these sites are encouraged to sign up for and use these trainings to help us deliver the highest quality care to our LGBT patients. All Continuing Medical Education (CMU) and Continuing Education Units (CEU) are free of charge. For directions on how to access these trainings, see the weekly MSHS Employee Update and Academic Update for the links or email LGBTinfo@mountsinai.org.
