The Mount Sinai Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery offers several educational opportunities, including degree and non-degree programs. We are committed to helping shape the future of gender-affirmation care. We believe in preparing our specialists with both medical knowledge and skills and compassionate understanding. Programs are based at The Mount Sinai Hospital, one of the largest and highest volume gender-affirmation surgery centers in the country.
