For Physicians of Transgender and Non-Binary Patients
The Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) delivers advanced care for transgender and non-binary people. We take a unified approach, combining our expertise in primary care, hormone therapy, behavioral health support, gender-affirming surgeries, and other supportive services.
We customize our care to complement the patient’s existing care. We can provide all of the patient’s medical care or just specific services needed. Throughout the COVID-19 outbreak, our doctors, nurses, and staff members are working diligently to ensure the health and safety of each patient who depends on us for care with rigorous protocols for their protection. You should feel confident reaching out to us for support in your patient’s care—and the care of other transgender and non-binary patients.
In addition to health care, we are committed to education, research, and community engagement to promote health equity and access to care. Alongside providing day-to-day health care, we are training the next generation of physicians caring for transgender patients. To this end, we are involved with several activities:
- We developed our first full-year fellowship (Transgender Psychiatry Fellowship Program) to train physicians in gender-affirming surgery and gender-affirming psychiatric care.
- We host a regular live surgery course for transgender-specific surgeries.
- Our faculty leads an on-line course for transgender care for primary care physicians.
