Video Length: 1 hour, 23 minutes

Health care disparities continue to be experienced by people who are LGBT, gender nonconforming, and/or are born with differences of sex development. To reduce these disparities, all health care providers must learn to address the specific health care needs of these populations, and health care institutions must promote a climate that supports, values, and includes sexual and gender minorities. In 2014, the AAMC issued a groundbreaking publication based on solid educational and assessment practices and theories. During this webinar, two of the publication authors and members of the academic medicine community will provide examples of how medical schools and teaching hospitals are implementing these recommendations and respond to participants questions about how they can best use this resource for their efforts.

Learning Objectives:
