For Physicians of Transgender and Gender Diverse Patients
The Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) delivers advanced care for transgender and gender diverse 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. You should feel confident reaching out to us for support in your patient’s care—and the care of other transgender and gender diverse 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 the first full-year fellowship programs (Transgender Surgical Fellowship Program, Transgender Psychiatry Fellowship Program) to train physicians in gender-affirming surgery, gender-affirming medicine, 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.
