Training Modules: Improving Ob/Gyn Care for Transgender and Non-Binary Individuals

Transgender, non-binary and other gender diverse individuals often face discrimination in health care settings. Research shows that many are unable to find competent, knowledgeable and culturally-appropriate health care.

To assist faculty and staff, we created modules to prepare ob/gyns and other providers to better care for transgender, non-binary and other gender diverse people.

These modules were developed and produced by Daphna Stroumsa, MD, MPH, in collaboration with physicians and activists across the country and with the support of Michigan Medicine and the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG). Dr. Stroumsa is a fellow in the National Clinician Scholars Program and in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Michigan.
